A British man who prosecutors in the US identified as the leader of a child pornography ring involving infants and toddlers has been sentenced to 85 years in prison.

US District Judge William T Lawrence sentenced Domminich Shaw, 35, of London, after he pleaded guilty last year to charges of conspiracy to advertise child pornography and conspiracy to receive and distribute child pornography.

Prosecutors in Indiana's Southern District said he was the last of nine individuals convicted in connection with Operation Bulldog, and all were given prison sentences of up to life behind bars.

Shaw was indicted in 2011 in Indianapolis and was extradited from the UK in December 2014 after being held by British authorities for three years.

Shaw ran a website that let users access photos and videos and distribute and share them with other members, prosecutors said.

He was also convicted in 2005 in the United Kingdom of assaulting four girls under the age of 13.
