A Florida man has been arrested after an investigation by the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Internet Crime Unit.
Justin Slavinski, 32, of Apopka, Florida, has been charged with one count of Criminal Solicitation of a Minor and three counts for Dissemination of Obscene Material to a Minor.
“As a result of a search warrant executed on Slavinski’s residence by authorities in Florida. It was discovered that Slavinski had been in contact with as many as forty young females and sent 27,000 instant messages throughout Florida and other states over the Internet,” said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson.
The investigation of Slavinski began when he was found to be online making contact with minors for sexual activity. A preliminary forensic examination of Slavinski’s computer revealed numerous photographs depicting child pornography and provided evidence supporting the investigation.
Slavinski was arrested and booked into the Lake County Jail where he is awaiting extradition to South Carolina. Slavinski’s expected arrival at the Georgetown County Detention Center is Friday, September 28, 2012 in the late evening.
The Internet Crimes Division of the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is a member of the Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Questions regarding this case can be directed to the SC Attorney General’s Office.
