A convicted child pornographer in Pennsylvania was sentenced Tuesday to 12 years in federal prison, thanks in part to three girls featured in CNN’s Freedom Project who provided information to U.S. authorities.

Jeffrey Herschell, 54, of Washington, Pennsylvania, visited an Internet site that showed live sex shows that forced young girls in the Philippines to act out customers’ fantasies, U.S. investigators said.

“Whatever the American client wants us to do, we must do it,” “Gen” told CNN in May 2011 for the documentary “The Fighters.” “Gen” and her friends were schoolmates and just 8 years old when the abuse occurred.
