AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- Sources tell News 12 an Aiken man bonded out on Tuesday after being slapped with a $220,000 bond for child pornography charges.

Ronald Gardner was arrested in June on 22 counts of child pornography charges, 20 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Investigators say Gardner is accused of having child pornography in his possession and distributing it.

Capt. Eric Abdullah with the Aiken County Sheriff's Office says Gardner did not have a personal connection to or contact with any of the children in the photos.
