Investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office ICAC Unit, in cooperation with the ICAC Task Force and the SC Attorney Generals Office, have arrested 30 year-old, Andres Felipe Rivera, in connection with Criminal Solicitation of a Minor. 

Investigators initiated an investigation after learning of inappropriate contact that Rivera was attempting to have with an underage female.  During the course of investigation, Rivera engaged in multiple conversations with who he believed to be an underage girl, but in fact he was speaking with undercover investigators.  Rivera was subsequently arrested on January 5th, and charged with three counts of Criminal Solicitation of a Minor and one count of Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor 3rd degree.

Rivera was transported to the Greenville County Detention Center, where he was given a$45,000 bond, and has since been released.  Investigators are concerned there may be additional victims who have had inappropriate contact with Rivera, and ask for anyone with information, to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 23-CRIME.
