Child Pornography, and an Issue of Restitution
Posted in: Child Protection&Online Safety at 04/02/2010 00:38
When Amy was a little girl, her uncle made her famous in the worst way: as a star in the netherworld of child pornography. Photographs and videos known as "the Misty series" depicting her abuse have circulated on the Internet for more than 10 years, and often turn up in the collections of those arrested for possession of illegal images.
Now, with the help of an inventive lawyer, the young woman known as Amy -- her real name has been withheld in court to prevent harassment -- is fighting back.
She is demanding that everyone convicted of possessing even a single Misty image pay her damages until her total claim of $3.4 million has been met.
