GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCIV) -- A Florida computer programmer has been charged with soliciting a minor in Georgetown County after authorities say he made contact with minors for sex.
Also, according to a news release from the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office, images of child pornography were found on a computer belonging to Justin Slavinski, 32.
Slavinski, of Apopka, Fla., was arrested at his home, deputies said, and is awaiting extradition to South Carolina.
