Lieutenant Kevin Bobo, Public Information Officer with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office, issued the following press release Thursday:

Our investigator assigned to the Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force concluded a child pornography investigation yesterday that began last month.

Acting on a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), the suspect’s identity and location were revealed, which led to a search warrant being executed at his residence yesterday.

Numerous images of child pornography were recovered, and a confession was obtained from the suspect. He is Ethan Jacob Fisher, W/M, DOB: 051199, 136 Padgett Court, Wellford, SC, 29385, and he is charged with 10 counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor – Second Degree.


He was incarcerated yesterday afternoon for 5 hours before being released on bond. My agency would like to thank the Department of Homeland Security for their continued assistance with the investigation of these type of cases. Fisher will be prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.
