SNAP Press Release
Victims, therapists and activists applaud novel move
Judge seeks financial restitution for child porn victim
Illicit pixs of her at age 8 are among “most widely circulated” ever
Advocates hope that greater awareness of new federal law will help
Making kiddie porn cost, not pay, is best way to deter such crimes, groups say
That offender, Brandon Anthony Buchanan, has been convicted of child porn.
District Judge Patrick Schiltz has given Assistant U.S. Attorney John Marti until Jan. 29 to either seek compensation for the victim or explain to him why he isn’t doing so. Schiltz said prosecutors are now required to do this.
In July 2006, a little-known and rarely-used federal statute took effect that provides a civil remedy for those victimized by child pornography. Advocates want more law enforcement and judicial staffers to educate citizens and child porn victims about that option.
News conference participants include prevention expert Cordelia Anderson M.A. (co-director of the Sexual Health and Responsibility Project), counselor Walter Bera (director of Kenwood Therapy Center), abuse victim Bob Schwiderski (Minnesota director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests), and attorney Jeff Anderson, who has represented hundreds of child sex abuse victims.
