Last updated on Monday, July 5, 2010

(NASHVILLE, IN) - A Nashville man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for participating in an online child pornography conspiracy.

51-year-old Scott Van Dorp and three other men plead guilty in Indianapolis to one count of conspiracy to advertise child pornography, one count of conspiracy to distribute child pornography, two counts of advertising child pornography and two counts of distributing child pornography.

A total of 26 people were charged in the conspiracy.

As a result, more than 50 people have been arrested and 38 have been convicted.

To date, 16 child victims have been identified.
