Victim files class action lawsuit

Those Who View Child Pornography Will be Fined and Arested Under Masha’s Law

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, (August 30, 2013) – Masha Allen was only five years old when she was adopted from a Russian orphanage by a millionaire from the Pittsburgh area named Matthew Mancuso. Mancuso made hundreds of pornographic and explicit images of Masha and is currently in jail along with 13 other men who had viewed these images. As a result of this horrific and devastating incident, “Masha’s Law,” named after Masha Allen, was passed by congress in 2006.

Under this law, anyone found to have viewed these images of Masha or any other child will be added to a list and fined and arrested. As a result, several class-action lawsuits have emerged from victims of child pornography, many of them now teens or adults. Each time an image is viewed online by suspects, it can be traced. The suspect can then be added to a growing and long list of offenders.

Suspects can now have assets seized and put in jail for several years. According to authorities, many of the suspects are seemingly upstanding members of society including teachers, police, fire fighters as well as educated and wealthy men. The FBI continues to track down these predators and bring them to justice.

“Every resource and intelligence available to law enforcement should be directed at finding and putting away child predators and child pornographers. It is the vilest and most offending aspect of society that must be eradicated with the harshest of consequences,” states personal injury attorney West Seegmiller. Mr. Seegmiller has been practicing personal injury, wrongful death, and employment law for over 32 years.

Security Guard Fired After Speaking with Media About His Heroic Deed

Security Guard Fired After Speaking with Media About His Heroic Deed

Security Guard Victor Bailey Helped Homeless Woman; Violated Company Policy as he Spoke to Media

SAN DIEGO, California (August 30, 2013)- A female victim of sexual assault was lured into a man’s vehicle and then he tried to rape her. Victor Bailey, a shelter security guard at an East Village homeless shelter, was able to console and help the woman. Bailey called 911 for her. Later, Baily agreed to be interviewed by 10News where he shared his story and feelings about the incident. Baily told reporters that crimes against the homeless, especially women are all too common and the public needs more awareness.

A day after the interview, Baily was chastised for having spoken with the media, and he was even fired from his job as a security guard. He was informed that he had violated a policy in which shelter employees cannot talk to the media without approval. Bailey was not aware of this policy, he states he was fired two weeks after he was reprimanded. Bailey was also very recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had a solid record of being on-time for his job, and not missing work.

“There may be something occurring here that had less to do with Bailey’s interview and more to do with the fact that he was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness. It may have been in the interests of the homeless shelter to let him go based on this fact”, states attorney West Seegmiller. “Mr. Bailey’s rights may have been violated as he may have been discriminated against due to his health status.”

Bob McElroy, president of The Alpha Project, which runs the winter homeless shelter that employed Bailey assured the media that Bailey’s termination was only the result of his media interview.
