Masha’s Law & Collecting Damages

“Masha’s Law” is a law that Congress passed in response to the case of Masha Elizabeth Allen, a Russian orphan who was adopted by a man in the U.S. who used Masha to produce hundreds of pornographic images. Masha’s Law not only calls for tougher federal penalties for those convicted of producing or circulating child pornography, but it also allows victims to seek damages from those defendants.

Under Masha’s Law, victims can seek up to $150,000 from those who:

  • Abused them and produced the pornographic media
  • Shared (distributed) the media
  • Downloaded the media
  • Purchased the media

In these cases, it may also be possible to seek damages against parties who failed to stop or enabled the abusers to create the media. If you believe that you have a legitimate claim under Masha’s law, then our team at Okabe & Haushalter is ready to hear from you. We are prepared to examine the details of your case and, if possible, have these offenses against you and your family rectified before the law.

Child Pornography is a Vicious Crime That Affects Millions Across Various Platforms

Media sharing is at an all-time high as the internet, smartphone, tablet, and app usage rises. Social media and the internet have made the distribution of child pornography easier.

According to Enough Is Enough, in the last reporting year:

  • Child pornographic images online increased by 97.5%, marking the highest number of reports ever
  • More than 21.7 million instances of suspected child pornography were reported
  • TikTok removed double the child nudity and abuse content from its platform
  • YouTube saw a 169% surge in removals
  • 68,000 reports were self-generated, an increase of 77%
  • The United States of America ranks as the second-largest URL host for child sexual abuse
  • 22% of online obscene content features children ten years old and younger

As parents, protecting our children is our top priority. When a child’s innocence is violated, they need a voice to stand up fight for their rights. There is never an excuse for creating, distributing, or possessing sexually abusive and exploitive images of children. Let the dedicated attorneys of Okabe & Haushalter handle this highly sensitive issue in a discreet and dignified manner. Call today.
