UK man charged in child porn case

A 35-year-old London man wanted in the US since 2011 on child pornography charges has made his initial court appearance after being extradited.

Acting US Attorney Josh Minkler said Domminich Shaw had been in custody in England for three years.

He was brought to Indianapolis, Indiana, on Saturday and charged yesterday with conspiracy to distribute child pornography, conspiracy to advertise child pornography, distributing child pornography, receiving child pornography and advertising child pornography.

Mr Minkler said most of the pornography involved children under the age of five.

An innocent plea was entered on his behalf. He was ordered to be detained until trial. No trial date has been set.

He faces up to life in prison if convicted on all counts.
