INDIANAPOLIS, IN (WAFF) - James McCullars, a former Huntsville Boy Scout Volunteer, has been found guilty in connection with an international child porn ring.

After five full days of testimony, a federal jury in Indiana found McCullars guilty on all counts.

McCullars created online chat rooms where he and other men discussed sexual interest in young boys. The men also viewed and traded large amounts of child porn.

During the trial, McCullars took the stand to testify and claimed his innocence.

Attorney Kenneth Riggins said it was a tough and complicated case, but said they will ask the court of appeals to review the case and grant McCullars a new trial.

One victim, who is still a minor, testified that McCullars sexually abused him.
