Lawyers Representing Child Porn Victims
Child pornography and sexual exploitation are devastating crimes with lifelong implications for victims and survivors. Once a pornographic image has been sold once, it may be sold over and over and over. If you or your child has been exploited for child pornography, you probably know the sexual criminal can be punished criminally. But what about compensation to the victim for his or her overwhelming loss?
Victims of child pornography and sexual exploitation now have the right to pursue their victimizers, and we are experienced litigators who regularly help sexual crime victims. No longer will child victims have to suffer horrible crimes without compensation. People who profit from and participate in these evil acts can held accountable not only criminally, but financially.
Masha’s Law is a federal law passed in response to the case of a Russian orphan named Masha, who was adopted in the United States by a man who used Masha to produce hundreds of pornographic images. Masha’s Law creates tough federal penalties for criminals convicted of producing or circulating child pornography. Masha’s Law also allows child pornography victims to seek monetary damages from those defendants.
Under Masha’s Law, victims (even if they did not suffer financial loss) can seek up to $150,000 from people who committed or even just enabled any of the following crimes:
- Abused them and produced pornographic media
- Shared (distributed or circulated) the media
- Downloaded the media
- Purchased the media
