Columbia man charged with sexting photos to woman's father

June 26, 2013 

A Columbia man is in jail after sending photos of a woman having sex to her father.

Deron Ronnie Carrier, 44, of 1814 Dunn St., Columbia, was arrested Tuesday by the Sumter County Sheriff's Office and charged with unlawful dissemination of obscenity.

The suspect allegedly sent several images of an adult woman engaged in sexual activity to the cellphone of the woman's father, who lives in Sumter County, in an attempt to blackmail the man. Investigators said it was unclear how the images were originally obtained.

The victim turned the images and cellphone records over to the sheriff's office, and Carrier was taken into custody Tuesday. He was being held at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center on Wednesday on a $2,500 surety bond.
