even if he did download 9 pics of child porn i cant agree that 90 years is what he would of deserved. he didnt hurt anyone. murderers get less time than that. not to mention hes 16. not like hes 40. not that that justifies it because it certainly doesnt.
maybe internet probation for a while but not 90 years lol.


I think you misunderstand me. I think, from a legal perspective, -if- he looked at the purposefully, he should get the 90 years that anyone else would get. Does he deserve to spend his life in prison? No, I don’t believe anybody -deserves- that. None the less, rather or not he deserves it, he doesn’t get special treatment because he’s a “good kid.”

I think the law is flawed and needs to be augmented. However, it is still the law and everyone is bound by it. We don’t get to be prejudice and say, “well he’s never done drugs or drank beer, so he gets away free of charge.”

Well, that sucks. He said he didn’t know how they got onto his computer. I don’t really buy that part, but a lot of kids get curious. The boy sounds a lot like me: a goodie-goodie looser who probably doesn’t fit in and is really awkward in a social environment.


I really wish the article has specified the location of the pictures on his computer, the number of his web browsers, the state of his browsers' cookies, caches, and temporary files, the number of hidden folders in his computer, how often he run an anti-virus and anti-spyware check on his computer, and whether his recycle bin is empty.

Unless he is an exceptionally intelligent boy, we could easily come to a conclusion of whether he intentionally downloaded the pictures base on those information.

I remember the article mentioned that they found more than 200 infected files on his computer, but that does not prove anything. If he were smart (and according to the article, he is smart), he could have easily created, or downloaded those files to create fake evidences to aid his innocent.

Also, why didn't the police check the deleted files on his hard drive for other porn pictures and videos? One down side of computer is that you cannot completely delete anything. Whatever you downloaded, it stays on your computer's hard drive forever, even though you thought you've erased all traces of it. The only way to completely erase those files is to destroy the hard drive physically. If there are evidences of deleted porn files on his computer, that means he's not innocent.

Anyway, for now I will assume that he intentionally downloaded those pornography because if it weren't him, why didn't he delete it for good?

He never tried drugs, alcohol, or anything illegal. He was even 16 before he started viewing internet pornography. My bet is that he wanted to know what an underage girl was like but couldn’t get one-so, he turned to the internet thinking: “Well, I’m a kid to so it’ll be alright.”

The problem is that the law doesn’t and shouldn’t work that way. (Shouldn’t because then a parent can just get his kid to say, “No, it wasn’t my dad, it was me.”)

Rather or not they were pictures or videos is irrelevant to me. What matters more is the content. Did the pictures show the girls in the midst of intercourse? No, the article says, “suggestive poses.” That doesn’t even necessarily mean nudity, though we’re assuming it was.

This being said I don’t think the boy’s some kind of sick pervert. None the less, when it comes to the law your character isn’t what’s in question. It’s your actions: did he look at child pornography?


Who knows when he started to view pornography or child pornography. There's no evidence to prove that. But it is a fact that he did something illegal by just stored porn on his hard drive when he is only 16, not to mention the child pornography thing.

But either way, I am suspecting the article's validity. The lack of evidences and information really get me to believe that this news is a fake. There are so many ways for the police to prove that he is guilty and there are so many ways for him to defense himself but none of which has been mentioned in the article. Even the verdict of the course was just briefly mentioned. Also, have you ever heard of the judge sending message through the internet to tell someone that he is not guilty? Shouldn't they announce it at the course? (image below)

That's just stupid, 9 pictures and you got 90 years? I agree with child pornography being wrong but that's just too much. And if he actually get into prison, there should be a lot of people being caught because of watching that, and we never heard of it.There's a lot of lolicon in the internet >.< (Wait, that's actually legal?)

okay, so that he was a bit curious and made a mistake (but not with bad intentions) would result in his whole life being ruined?
I'm sorry, I believe in second chances so I'll call this (in my humble opinion) pathetic excuse for a law worthless.

Besides, after the law decides to ruin his life in prison, when (if) he gets out, I wonder how is he going to feel about society? Somehow I don't believe people coming out of jail to be wearing an angel halo.. More like hatred towards the society who put him there, especially if he felt he was wrongly accused...
