As a young girl, Alice (not her real name) logged on to the popular live video chat website, Omegle, and was randomly paired with a paedophile, who coerced her into becoming a digital sex slave. Nearly 10 years later the young American is suing Omegle in a landmark case that could pave the way for a wave of lawsuits against other social platforms.
The smallest things can remind Alice of the abuse she suffered as a child.
Her abuser was very particular about how she looked in the videos he forced her to send him, telling her to wear her hair in a ponytail to the left side of her head.
"I was only 11, but he wanted me to look as young as I could," she says. บาคาร่า77
Even now, if Alice's hair gets pulled to the left it causes her to shudder violently.
Alice is today a confident 21-year-old in a loving relationship but she says the scars of the abuse she suffered will linger for the rest of her life.
