The Virginia House voted Thursday to move hundreds of thousands of dollars to a fund devoted to combating child pornography and child exploitation in the state.
RICHMOND (AP) — A Pennsylvania teenager who was abducted, held hostage and sexually assaulted by a Virginia man she met online asked legislators yesterday for more funding to crack down on child sexual predators.
Miss Kozakiewicz, now 19 and a college student, said the legislation is needed to protect children against those she called pure evil: "predators who not only rape a child, but revel in their screams of horror as they cry and bleed and sweat, begging for mercy; perverts who will film this abuse and share it online with others, hundreds of thousands of others right here in the United States; sadistic monsters watching these horrors over and over and over, until eventually they are driven to re-create the scenarios
"Kids will push the envelope, and they will engage in dangerous behaviors online," Mrs. Kozakiewicz said. "Parents must be the first line of defense, and we need to know our enemy."
