A court in Finland's capital has convicted a 41-year-old man of sexual crimes against 34 children in the Nordic country's largest pedophilia case and sentenced him to four years in prison.

Jussi-Pekka Noukkala was found guilty of luring girls and boys into providing sexual favors mostly over the Internet. They included acquiring explicit webcam pictures of the 12 to 15-year-olds and having intercourse with some of them, in exchange for money, cigarettes and alcohol.

Friday's ruling by a Helsinki court was the second in a 2005-2008 pedophilia case involving three men and 66 children. One of the accused was sentenced in April to 20 months in prison. The third suspect will appear in court later this month.
