Childhood Rape Taken to the Supreme Court

A woman whose childhood rapes by her Uncle were captured on camera is taking her argument to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The woman's rapes were not only captured on tape, but widely traded on the internet .

She wants the high 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 before the Justices on Wednesday involves a Texas Man who pleaded guilty to possessing images of children engaged in sex acts.

He is appealing an order holding him responsible for the full amount of the losses she says she suffered, which is nearly 3.4 million dollars.

Her supporters say holding defendants liable for the entire amount of victims' losses better reflects the ongoing harm victims suffer each time someone views the images online.
