BILLINGS - A 35-year-old Billings man who was sentenced to nearly 14 years in prison for receiving child pornography has been ordered to pay a girl who was depicted in three movies $3,000 in restitution.

U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull decided the amount Thursday after sentencing Keith Edward Baroun to 13 years and nine months in prison earlier in the week.

Baroun pleaded guilty to receiving child porn on his computer, and Cebull held him responsible for about 2,700 images, including 36 videos. Three of the videos were of a victim identified by the pseudonym "Vicky."

"Vicky's" attorney had sought nearly $232,000 in restitution from the Baroun case. Most of the request was for future counseling, but it also included attorney fees and costs.

Cebull says the $3,000 is not to be used for attorney fees.
