Greer man gets 21 years for producing child porn

GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – A Greer man has been sentenced to more than 21 years for production of child pornography, according to U.S. Attorney Beth Drake.

Sean Patrick Oswell, 52, was sentenced to 262 months in prison, followed by a life term of supervised release, including sex offender registration, sex offender counseling, and polygraph requirements.

Prosecutors say law enforcement found pornographic images of a very young child in Australia created and distributed by Oswell.

Investigators say Oswell took the pictures of the prepubescent child and sexually exploited the child.

The case was investigated by agents of ICE-Homeland Security Investigations and Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office. The Child Advocacy Center of Spartanburg, Cherokee, & Union provided forensic evaluation in the case.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
