A South Australian man has avoided a jail term for downloading international child pornography.

Shane Padberg, 26, of Elizabeth North was among 15 Australians charged last year.

Australian Federal Police (AFP) allege a video showing the rape of an eight-year-old girl was downloaded.

The AFP said it acted on information from German police who identified 9,000 suspects worldwide.

Adelaide District Court Judge Kevin Nicholson said Padberg conceded he had more than 800 images and more than 2,000 videos of despicable pornography involving children aged between nine months and 14 years.

But the judge said the man was not considered to be a paedophile.

Padberg was given a suspended jail sentence and put on a two-year good behaviour bond.

He must get treatment and counselling.
