BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) A federal judge in Connecticut has ordered a man convicted of possessing child pornography to pay about $200,000 in restitution to a woman photographed as a child while being sexually abused.

Senior U.S. District Judge Warren W. Eginton said his ruling Monday was the first criminal case in which someone convicted of possessing illegal images but not creating them is required to pay restitution.

The case involves Alan Hesketh, who was sentenced to 78 months in prison for possessing and distributing nearly 2,000 photographs of child pornography. The resident of Stonington, Conn., was a vice president of Pfizer.

Pictures of the victim as a child being subjected to sexual abuse turned up in Hesketh's collection.
