Child porn ring sentenced in indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A federal judge in Indiana has sentenced four members of a major international online child pornography ring to prison, including a high-ranking administrator of the group's website.

Officials have said the group ran the Cache, an online message board where members shared millions of pornographic images and videos. At its peak, the site had 1,000 members. Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven DeBrota says 49-year-old Michael Baratta of Sacramento, Calif., was one of five top-level administrators for the message board. Baratta was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison.

Three others received 15- or 10-year sentences. The convictions resulted from a two-year international investigation called Operation Nest Egg.
