BEIJING — Continuing its assault on adult entertainment, China sentenced four men to up to two-and-a-half years in jail for running a pornographic website, China’s official English-language newspaper reported Friday.

Liang Hongbin, Li Yufe, Yu Jianhong and Chen Dong were arrested in August during the government’s crackdown on Internet pornography.

Claiming that the county’s youth were being corrupted by easy access to online porn, China began to seriously denounce pornography in June, claiming that it “severely damaged social style, polluted the social environment, and harmed the physical and psychological health of the young people.”

Government officials then began to offer a bounty of $240 for anyone tips relating to the capture of anyone involved in operating a porn website based within the country.

Since the crackdown began, 445 people have been arrested and approximately 1,125 websites have been shut down the government.

Officials have also threatened to give a life sentence to the owner of any China-based adult website that has more than 250,000 visitors.

Last month, a 22-year-old Chinese computer student convicted of running a porn site was sentenced to five years in prison by a Chinese court.

A Chinese woman was also sentenced to four years in jail for running an online strip joint.
