Law Introduced Would Allow Child Porn Victims to Sue

February 19th, 2008 by flanews

Children who are photographed in pornographic settings would be able to sue the people who take or even transmit their pictures. Legislation introduced Tuesday supported by the Attorney General would provide settlements of up to $150,000 for each offense. Maureen Horkan runs the Cyber Crime Unit in the Attorney Generals office and she said the pictures they find are too graphic to show in public.

They contain penetration of small children by adults and objects. Children covered with feces. Children bound. Children being made to be tied and threatened with weapons. Children that in some of the images are crying. It is a horrific reality that is out there, said Horkan.

While many who transmit child porn have no assets, many do. The Attorney
General believes the legislation will result in payments to adults who where taken advantage of as children, but only if they come forward.
