Lexington, SC 01/10/2023 - This week, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announced the arrest of Brian Andrew Brown, 18, of West Columbia, and Nathan Allen Miller, 32, of Cayce on six total charges connected to the sexual exploitation of minors. The Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force investigators along with the Lexington County Sheriff's Department made the arrests in these unrelated cases. Investigators with the Attorney General's Office, also a member of the state's ICAC Task Force, assisted with these investigations.
Investigators received a CyberTipline report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) which led them to both Brown and Miller. Investigators state Brown distributed files of child sexual abuse material and Miller was in possession of child sexual abuse material.
Brown was arrested on December 28, 2022. He is charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, second degree, a felony offense punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment on each count.
Miller was arrested on December 29, 2022. He is charged with four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, third degree, a felony offense punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment on each count.
Both of these cases will be prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office. Attorney General Wilson stressed all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until they are proven guilty in a court of law.
