COLUMBIA, S.C. -

Joey Thomas Carter, a former elementary school teacher for Anderson District 5, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States in court Tuesday.

Prosecutors say the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip from Juno.com that Carter had been downloading child pornography. That was in turn, reported to law enforcement.

Agents obtained a federal search warrant to search Carter's home. Inside, they say they found multiple images and video of child porn. In an interview with agents, Carter admitted to trading child porn over the internet.

Carter faces up to 10 years in prison and more than $250,000 in fines. The judge will sentence Carter after he has reviewed a report from the U.S. Probation Office.
