County man sentenced to 16 years

  • Monday, January 14, 2013

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson called the 16-year prison sentence given to a Berkeley County man last week a significant victory in the fight to protect children from online predators.
Raymond Cain, 26, was convicted on twenty counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, Second Degree. 
On Dec. 19 in Berkeley County General Sessions Court, Judge Stephanie McDonald sentenced Cain to 16 years in prison, to be followed by five years probation. Cain consented to the forfeiture of his computer, and was required to register as a sex offender, Wilson reported.
The sentence is one of the toughest handed down in South Carolina in a child pornography case.  It was prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office.    
Investigators called the images some of the most horrific photos they had seen.
 “This is a significant victory in our ongoing fight to protect South Carolina children and families from online predators,” Wilson said. “It’s important to remember that the people depicted in these disturbing images aren’t actors; they’re real children who are forever scarred by the crimes committed against them.”
