Waukesha man ordered to pay restitution to child porn victim

FARGO (WTAQ) - A Waukesha man who's in prison for possessing child pornography in North Dakota must now pay $3,250 to one of his victims.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon of Fargo said it's the first time restitution has ever been ordered in a federal child porn case in North Dakota.  

58-year-old Robert Evans was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was convicted last fall on 14 federal counts of child porn possession.

A victim submitted a compensation claim after Evans was convicted. Those claims are allowed under a U.S. Supreme Court ruling from April.

It said those who trade child porn images to other adults can be held liable for related losses that a victim incurs.
