A man is facing child exploitation charges after an investigation by the Union County Sheriff’s Office (UCSO).
Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office have arrested 20-year-old Dillian Killian following a lengthy investigation into internet crimes against children.
The sheriff’s office received a cyber warning from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that Killian was accessing and downloading images and videos flagged as child sexual abuse material.
