Some judges have said restitution goes too far in punishing pedophiles whose only crime is to view photos, but Amy's lawyer, James Marsh, disagrees, saying the brutality in the \"secret society\" of child pornography requires tough measures.
They say that in that year alone, the Misty series was viewed by more than 8,800, showing Amy forced to perform \"extremely graphic\" acts, including oral sex, anal penetration and masturbation with an adult man.
\"The healing process is hard enough without 800 reminders coming in the mail constantly, knowing that other people knew what happened to you,\" said Jennifer Wilson Marsh, who is hotline director for The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization. \"The shame is amplified.\"
