All have been sentenced to anywhere from eight to 315 years.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says it has prosecuted eight more men as part of what they call “Operation Bulldog.” All of the men have pleaded guilty to possession and distribution of child porn. Four of the men entered guilty pleas this week.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve DeBroda says the men were involved in trafficking images amongst themselves and others. The images involve the sexual of abuse of minors ranging in age from two months to four years of age.

“This is the first group that I’m aware of that was ever prosecuted anywhere that was directed at sexual attraction to very young minors called Neophiles,” he says. “That’s the first time anyone has caught a group like that.”

First Assistant U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler says as a result of the 18-month Operation Bulldog, they’ve rescued more than two dozen abused children in Indiana and across the world.

Operation Bulldog began with the November 2010 arrest of David Bostic. He’s the Bloomington man they say possessed hundreds of images and videos of very young children engaged in sexually explicit acts. They say Bostic actively distributed the images and communicated with others via social media.

Among others prosecuted: 32-year-old Shawhn Kuykendall of South Carolina, 23-year-old Javahn Algere of Louisiana, 21-year-old Richard Szulborski of Pennsylvania, 22-year-old Jeremy Labrec of Texas, 58 year old Danny L. Druck of Kentucky, 37-year-old Chris Reid of Michigan, 41 year old Todd King of California and 28 year old Nicholas King of Washington.

All have been sentenced to anywhere from eight to 315 years. Bostic is serving a 315 year sentence.
