SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah attorney will argue before the U.S. Supreme Court next week in a case dealing with child pornography victims recovering money from those who view their abuse.

University of Utah law professor Paul Cassell is representing a woman known as “Amy” who was 8-years-old when she was abused by a relative.

The relative shared the images online and was later sentenced to prison.

But Cassell says tens of thousands of people have viewed the images of the abuse over the years.

He says each time someone is convicted of viewing the images, they owe “Amy” restitution.

Defendants in the case say they don’t owe money because they viewed the images years later.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1kADOJH) the court will hear arguments Jan. 22 and is expected to rule in June.
