His daughter, Karen Sunderland, said the family would take Cherry's body back to Texas for burial. Sobbing, she said she had planned to come to Alabama for a visit today.

"He was a good man," she said.

Mary Anne Layden, co-director of a sexual trauma program at the University of Pennsylvania, said pornography’s effect on the brain mirrors addiction to heroin or crack cocaine. She told of one patient, a business executive, who arrived at his office at 9 a.m. each day, logged onto Internet porn sites, and didn’t log off until 5 p.m.
