Restitution for Victims of Child Porn

WBUR's Hear and Now

Federal judges are now being asked to consider whether someone convicted of possessing child porn should pay restitution to the children in those images. "Amy," as she's known in court papers, is now 20; but when she was 8 or 9 her uncle took pictures of her that are among the most circulated child porn images. She's using the Crime Victims Rights Act of 2004 to win millions of dollars in court-ordered damages from people who use those abusive images of her. We speak with Amy's attorney, James Marsh, and Jonathan Shapiro, who is defending a man who has been ordered to pay restitution to her.
