NEW ORLEANS — Federal prosecutors say a Seattle man has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for downloading videos of underage boys performing sex acts from websites that were part of an online child pornography ring run out of Louisiana.
U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite (poh-LEET') says Nicholas Saine is one 10 people charged by the U.S. Attorney office in New Orleans in connection with the file-sharing network uncovered by the federal "Operation Roundtable" investigation.
The investigation targeted the owner of the site and the 27,000 registered users of his websites. So far, 25 people have been charged nationwide in the investigation.
Prosecutors say Saine downloaded four videos, but never uploaded any images of his own.
