In Child Pornography Case, Court Struggles Over How to Compensate Victim
In an interview, one of Amy’s attorneys, James Marsh of The Marsh Law Firm, said that he submitted a memorandum dated October 10 asking for the full restitution amount of $3.37 million. As an alternative, Marsh requested a minimum restitution amount of $150,000 in accordance with a law that provides relief to victims of child pornography. Marsh said he was unsure if Kessler failed to receive the memorandum from Assistant U.S. Attorney David Kent. Overall, Marsh said that he was “a little bit perplexed” by Kessler’s memorandum order. “The victim is entitled to the full amount of her losses,” Marsh said.
