A Colombian man who sexually abuses nearly 300 children was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Juan Carlos Sánchez Latorre committed the crime in 2007/08, a court ruled in the city of Barranquilla.

Sánchez Latorre, late 30, used the alias Big Bad Wolf to share pictures and videos of abuse online.

He was arrested five years ago in Venezuela after five years on the run with a fake identity card.

During the trial, Sánchez Latorre pleaded guilty to sexually abusing 276 boys and girls.

The prosecution said he had targeted his victims online, then met them in shopping malls and offered them money for sexual contact.

If they refused, they were often attacked, prosecutors said.

The authorities believe that Sánchez Latorre has committed further crimes in Venezuela before he was finally arrested in Maracaibo and extradited to Colombia in September 2018.

His neighbors said they never thought he could be a dangerous pedophile.
