GOOSE CREEK, SC -
Tuesday agents with NCIS in Goose Creek turned a man over to police after thousands of child porn photos were found on his computer.

Goose Creek Police arrested 20-year old Alexander Michael Green last Sunday. Green is charged with 4 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

It was back on December 5th that police in Goose Creek were first contacted by a Special Agent from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. She told officers that Green, who was living on the base, told a doctor he was downloading and viewing child porn on his personal computer.

With the help of NCIS the officers from Goose Creek took Green's computer from the home at 69 Webster Street and police say they found over 3,000 photographs of nude or semi-nude females as well as 45 videos that included juveniles.

Police say he told them he has been downloading and viewing child porn at home for the past year.  He said he usually views girls between the ages of 9 and 10-years old.  At his bond hearing, Green was given a $40-thousand dollar bond for each count.  At this time Police do not expect any further charges against Alex Green.

Dr. William Burke from Summerville Behavioral Health specializes in such behavior. He was included in a panel of physicians who studied, admitted child predator Skip Reville after his arrest.

Burke said he could not comment on this case specifically but said while it's hard for a lot people to believe that an adult finds such things, like child porn, exciting it's an addiction like anything else.

"You've got person that is chasing a high not unlike a cocaine addict, with pornography that seems to be what's occurring you are chasing this attempt to be satisfied sexually you are really set up for failure because the system is not going to allow that."

 Dr. Burke, who has been doing this work for 30-years, also said it's more common that you may think—at one time only getting 3 or 4 cases a year but the internet has helped those from all walks of life get an unlimited fix.

"The whole internet universe of child pornography has changed the demographics. We've got people who are wealthy we have high positions in corporations they're business and government-- and I have got homeless people who go to the library and download child pornography and everything in between."
