China Throws Internet Porn Monger in Jail

China's been making a constant effort to weed out questionable material from its country, including pornography. One man was sentenced to 13 years in jail for running a pornographic website, reported China Daily.

Huang Yizhong since 2005 ran a server that he rented from inside the United States. Huang downloaded more than 1,000 pornographic films and edited them into shorter clips that his 4,000 paying members could view online. He reportedly received profits of around 500,000 yuan ($73,242).

In addition to the 13-year sentence, Huang was also fined 100,000 yuan ($14,600).
