Porn Victim Sues Alleged Distributor

LOS ANGELES (CN) – A child abuse victim has sued a Marina Del Ray man who she claims distributed images of her in a film series widely shared by pedophiles and child molesters.
     Plaintiff “Amy” sued Gregory Allen Webb in Federal Court on Monday, alleging invasion of privacy and civil liability for personal injuries.
     Webb was arrested on charges of possession of child pornography after he distributed 177 child pornography images to an undercover agent through the instant messenger service Google Hello!, the complaint states.
     The FBI raided Webb’s apartment in March 2008 and discovered 280 child pornography images on his computer, including abuse of prepubescent girls and children as young as 3, according to the 11-page complaint.
     Webb accepted a plea agreement and admitted to possession of child pornography, according to the lawsuit.
     The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children later matched images found on Webb’s computer to images of Amy that are stored on its database, the complaint states.
     “Upon information and belief, one or more of the images found on Webb’s computer and computer files are of Amy in the ‘Misty Series,’ which shows Amy being sexually abused as a child by an adult man,” the lawsuit states. “The ‘Misty Series’ is widely circulated among pedophiles and child molesters.”
     Amy says she filed under a pseudonym because she fears victimization if she goes public with her true identity. She adds that her appearance in the series is unknown to some of her close friends and family.
     “Additionally, Amy’s need for anonymity outweighs any prejudice to defendant or the public’s interest in knowing her identity,” the complaint states.
     She seeks damages and costs. She is represented by Robert Lewis with the Marsh Law Firm of New York City.
     The attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
