Ex-Anderson teacher pleads guilty to child porn


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a former elementary school teacher in Anderson County has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.

Authorities say they started investigating 47-year-old Joey Carter after an Internet provider reported he was downloading child pornography.

Investigators got a search warrant and found photos and pictures of children in sexual situations on several computers. Prosecutors say Carter admitted to trading child pornography on the web.

Carter faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced at a later date.

Prosecutors say Carter is a former teacher in Anderson School District No. 5.
