STOCKHOLM—A court in southern Sweden has convicted a man of ordering online sex shows involving very young Filipino girls and sentenced him to eight years in prison.

Judge Khennet Tallinger of the Hassleholm District Court said the 52-year-old man paid adult women and relatives of the six girls — aged between 5 and 8 — to carry out graphic and violent assaults on the children.

The judge says the man, who wasn’t named publicly under Swedish privacy rules, paid for the shows in 2008 to 2009 by bank transfer — usually $30-$40 a time — and watched live online.

The man denied the charges.
