SC man shares 1.6 million child porn pictures, gets 15 years in prison

Fritz Edward Neiger

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – State prosecutors say a 66-year-old South Carolina man will serve 15 years in prison for sharing more than 1.6 million pictures of child pornography on the internet.

Attorney General Alan Wilson said in a news release that Fritz Edward Neiger uploaded the images and more than 11,000 sexually explicit videos involving children for 12 years from his Cayce home.

Prosecutors said Neiger pleaded guilty last week to five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and five counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor before getting his 15-year sentence. He will also have to register as a sex offender.

Wilson says Neiger did not create any child pornography on his own.

Authorities found the images after searching Neiger’s home in July 2015.
