Cambodia pardons Australian film-maker James Ricketson weeks after jailing him for espionage
But throughout the trial, Mr Ricketson continuously questioned the charges against him, asking who he was meant to be spying for. He and several character witnesses had testified that he provided financial assistance to several poverty-stricken Cambodians.

He claimed he never had sex with the girl and she had been impregnated her with sperm using artificial insemination. At that point, Thrash and the girl's mother took the girl and moved to Indiana.
