A man was arrested charged, and convicted after allowing numerous men to rape his little boy, according to court proceedings in Indiana.
Now, the man has been sentenced to 40 years in jail after pleading guilty to child rape charges.
The man, who was identified by police as an Australian native, was accused of using his little son for publishing online pornography. He has been sentenced in a U.S. court after authorities discovered child porn video streams being downloaded from his computer in Indiana.
The 42-year-old, was sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy charges related to child exploitation. The Indiana judge said he accepted the plea agreement Friday because the crime was too horrible for a jury trial.
Federal prosecutor Steve DeBrota said the defendant and his companion took the child to different countries and allowed other men to sexually abuse him. Prosecutors said that the crimes occurred in Australia, the U.S., France and Germany.
During Friday’s hearing, the man told the judge he was sorry, and that he loved his son.
The man has purchased the child for $8,000 in a foreign country and has used false adoption documents to adopt the child in the U.S. The sexual abuse occurred when the child was as young as 2-years-old.
The judge also ordered the man to pay $400,000 in restitution to the abused boy.
