ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) -

A Rock Hill man has been arrested and charged with distribution of child pornography after investigators say he shared child porn online.

Derek Van Buren Robinson, 28, is charged with five counts of second degree sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a news release from the SC Attorney General's Office.

Investigating the distribution of child pornography via a peer-to-peer network, a York County undercover investigator downloaded images depicting children engaged in sexual activity. 

Further investigation revealed the downloaded images originated from an account associated with a subscriber in York County, according to the release. 

A search warrant was executed at Robinson's residence, and a computer was seized and submitted for forensic examination by the Sheriff's Office.

Robinson was arrested on Thursday and could face two to ten years in prison on each count, if convicted.
