— Kansas Attorney General Steve Six is working with a national group to publicize a new state law aimed at victims of child pornography.

The law was approved by the 2010 Legislature and paves the way for victims of child porn to sue those who exploited them. Victims can seek damages of at least $150,000 from those involved in producing, promoting and possessing the pornography.

Lawsuits can be filed either by private attorneys or through assistance by the attorney general's office.

Six and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children are launching a media campaign to bring awareness to the law and the help it offers victims.

And hopefully, the money will be put in a trust fund strictly for the benefit of the victims so the parent(s) cannot have access to it.

A step in the right direction but the United Nations should make this a world wide law to allow lawsuits in any jursidiction.
