McEntee: Utahn joins new restitution push for child porn victims
< Previous Page
Both Vicky and Amy have received hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution, some in large sums, but most trickling in after hundreds of court orders. But they are a distinct minority; The Times reported that few other victims of redistributed child pornography even know they might have that option.
I’m with Cassell. I know more than I want to about the scourge of child sexual abuse, and I believe those who create or view child porn should be punished to the greatest extent of the law and pay restitution for their crimes.
Their victims deserve it.
