Kan. sex predator faces hearing on restitution

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A convicted child sex predator from central Kansas will soon learn how much he must pay the 9-year-old girl he used to produce pornography.

Fifty-year-old Philip Andra Grigsby, of Marquette, faced a restitution hearing Monday before the same federal judge who sentenced him in May to 260 years in prison. His attorney has already filed a notice of appeal in the case.

Grigsby pleaded guilty to eight counts of sexually exploiting a child. He also pleaded guilty to possessing child porn and illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

The investigation began after Grigsby sent emails containing child porn to an Australian man. Investigators were able to identify the victim after noticing the name of a middle school on a physical fitness certificate.
