Ex-officer Matthew Fanning, his hands cuffed behind his back
A victim of child rape - whose attacks were filmed and put on the Internet by her dad - lashed out Thursday at a retired NYPD cop as he was sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for downloading the sadistic videos.
Former officer Matthew Fanning, his hands cuffed behind his back, listened while a prosecutor read the now 19-year-old girl's statement in Queens Supreme Court.
"Every day people are sharing videos of me being raped in the most sadistic way," wrote the woman.
"I wonder if the people I know have seen this image. I wonder if the men I pass in the grocery store have seen it. They are trading my trauma like treats at a party."
Her father has been sent away to prison for raping and recording the attacks that were distributed online.
"Every time they're downloaded I'm exploited again," wrote the 19-year-old, who recently dropped out of college because of the continued stress.
Fanning, 48, pleaded guilty last month to two counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child.
Prosecutors say he kept videos of children as young as 3 years old having sex with adults on a computer in his South Ozone Park home.
He apologized to the young girls in the video.
"I pray for them and their families every day," he told Justice Fernando Camacho.
"The phrase Lord knows I'm sorry comes to mind," Fanning added. "I swear to God nothing like this will ever happen again. I ask for God's forgiveness today."
Fanning, who retired from the NYPD on a 75% disability pension, will receive treatment as a sex offender while he's locked up, said Assistant District Attorney Kateri Gasper.
