AG McMaster announces 200th Internet task force arrest

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH, AP) -- South Carolina's top prosecutor announced Friday the 200th arrest made by his statewide Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Attorney General Henry McMaster says while he hoped that the Taks Force can be a model for other states across the country, the bad news for the parents and children is there are millions of predators still out there.

According to McMaster of the 200 arrests so far 142 have been prosecuted.

The task force has been a centerpiece of McMaster's two terms as South Carolina attorney general. He unsuccessfully ran for governor this year and leaves office in January.
