BERKELEY, S.C. (WCIV) -- A Berkeley County man has been convicted on 20 counts of second degree sexual exploitation of a minor after investigators say he shared 67 photos of child porn.

Raymond Cain, 26, was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Tuesday. That sentence is to be followed by five years probation. A representative with the South Carolina Attorney General's office said Cain consented to the forfeiture of his computer, and was required to register as a sex offender.

In a statement from the SCAG office, Attorney General Alan Wilson called the 16-year prison sentence "a significant victory in the fight to protect children from online predators."

Warning: The following was also included in the statement and may be considered graphic.

"Investigators called the images some of the most horrific photos they had seen.

Using the screen name 'pedoyou,' on May 18, May 20 and June 11, 2010, Cain disseminated 67 different images of child pornography (with most comprising the rape of infants and toddlers) to investigators from the Boynton Beach Police Department in Florida and to the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit in Canada.  Cain eventually told SLED investigators he was 'turned on' by sexual pictures of infants with adults.  Web postings were found where Cain requested images of babies being raped, 'the bloodier the better.'"

After hearing from a concerned caller that the sentence handed down was actually 160 years (eight years for each count), we called the SC Attorney General's Office and were informed that the original sentence was 160 years. The judge then reconsidered and knocked the sentence down to 16 years with five years probation.

The case was heard by Berkeley County General Sessions Court Judge Stephanie McDonald.
