Annotation: Witness testimony and exhibits are provided which examine child pornography and pedophilia from the perspectives of both the child molester and the victim and review efforts by American and European law enforcement authorities to halt the distribution of commercial child pornography in the United States.
Abstract: A convicted child molester describes his own sexual molestation as a child, his introduction to child pornography and its informal distribution networks, his sexual obsession with young girls, sexual experiences with child prostitution, and his conviction and subsequent therapy. An adolescent male, sexually abused by his uncle for 4 years, focuses on the dynamics of the relationship and its impact on the victim and his family. Criminal proceedings against the uncle and the utility of counseling also are described. Testimony on behalf of the U.S. State Department describes meetings between U.S. and Dutch, Danish, and Swedish officials which should lead to greater cooperation among those countries to stem the flow of child pornography into the United States. Appendixes include letters and statements covering the establishment of a Commission on Pornography, child pornography prosecution statistics, child pornography laws in the Netherlands and Denmark, child prostitution, connections among various pedophile rings, and related issues. For Part 1 of this testimony, see NCJ 98673.
