A man from Pickens County has been arrested on child sex abuse charges, according to Attorney General Alan Wilson.

Wilson says that the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigators with Pickens County Sheriff’s Office made the arrest.

According to Wilson, investigators received a CyberTipline report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which led them to Carl Lee Price, 35, of Easley.

Price has been arrested before in 2022 on similar charges and was still in custody on those charges when he was served his new warrants on Wednesday, Wilson says.

Price has been charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor to the second degree, a felony offense punishable by up to 10 years in prison on each count.
