Child porn suspects pay restitution to victims

KDSK Channel 5 St. Louis

James Marsh is an attorney who represents "Amy," a woman who was sexually assaulted by her uncle starting when she was four years old.

Marsh says "Amy," pictured in the infamous "Misty Series" of child porn images, is victimized every time images of her are downloaded into a computer. Marsh says "Amy" has received more than 800 notifications from federal prosecutors that her images have been found on computers seized in child porn investigations. In some of those cases, Marsh has sued for restitution, and "Amy" is getting paid.

Marsh says money may never heal his client, but the money will help cover the costs of therapy for the woman, who is so traumatized to this day she cannot go to school or hold a job. In a victim's statement filed in federal court, another victim, from another series of photos, called the "Vicky Series," says some of the viewers of her images have tried to contact her over the years. The woman adds that she is fearful that someday, a man on the street might recognize her from the computer images.
