WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman whose childhood rapes by her uncle were captured on camera and widely traded on the Internet wants the Supreme Court to make it easier for victims of child pornography to collect money from people who view the brutal images on their computers. The case being argued at the Supreme Court on Wednesday involves a Texas man who pleaded guilty to possessing images of children engaged in sex acts, including two of the woman known as Amy. Doyle Randall Paroline is appealing an order holding him responsible for the full amount of losses, nearly $3.4 million, that Amy suffered. Amy’s supporters say that holding defendants liable for the entire amount of victims’ losses better reflects the ongoing harm victims suffer each time someone views the images online.
