Woman arrested for attempting to frame husband by putting child porn on his computer

A Pennsylvania woman was busted for putting child pornography on a home computer in a failed bid to get her estranged husband arrested, state police said.

Meri Jane Woods, 42, sparked the investigation last August — when she strolled into a state police barracks in the town of Indiana to report her husband had sexually abused children, authorities said.

Woods, of Cherry Hill Township, also told investigators that her unidentified husband had downloaded several images of the abuse on their home computer.

But troopers soon found that all of the lewd files on the computer were installed just three days before Woods went to the police. The probe also found that Woods’ husband, Matthew Woods, had moved out of the home the month before.


http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/pennsylvania-woman-busted-frame-husband-child-porn-article-1.1556487

She's not only facing charges relating to the child porn, but she's facing 40 counts of lying to the police.

Well, the divorce should be pretty easy now...

1. Not like people to lie like that about such things

He is probably guilty of something else. (yes, that is sarcasm - but there is a good chance some are indeed thinking that)

Either way, that sort of accusation sticks with someone, even when found innocent. Name gets in the paper, it spreads doubts among people which may make it harder to find employment, housing, etc.

I saw inmates night after night and certainly not all of them were convicted. For whatever reason charges might be dropped. But some crimes you remember and associate with the person anyway (you hear snide remarks from inmates and other deputies that the person will be caught eventually for something else, etc).

Coming down hard on people who lie about such crimes would hopefully reduce the urge to do so.

Maybe he cheated on her (something about a woman scorn). Her actions were reckless. As you stated once it hits the papers and news it really doesn't matter if the charges are dropped. There are going to be some that believe the story no matter what.

7. "once it hits the papers and news it really doesn't matter if the charges are dropped."

I don't see where he was ever even charged. Wife made allegations, police investigated, found her story to be false.

From the link in the OP:


Pennsylvania State Police said Meri Jane Woods, 42, installed child pornography on a home computer in a failed attempt to get her husband arrested.

104. woman scorned. not so much. husband generally kills cause scorned. wife generally kills cause of

threat of violence. it should read, man scorned. can we put this old and tired away?


More important are the reasons for such family violence. When women kill
within the family circle, previous research indicates that in roughly half the cases the
victim is likely to be the spouse of the offender (Wallace 1986). In their examination
of incarcerated women who had killed their spouses or boyfriends, Bacon and
Lansdowne (1982) reported that in fourteen of the sixteen cases the woman had been
assaulted by the male she was subsequently accused of killing. Thus, the violence of
such women can be viewed as both reactive and defensive. Consistent with this view
is the finding of Wallace that:
Women killed their husbands against a background of violence; they killed in
response to and because of violence perpetrated by their husband on them and/or
other members of their family (Wallace 1986, p. 108).

122. Who was killed here?

Not that destroying someone's life isn't probably nearly as bad, but I must have missed the violence and killing here.

And yes, women and men scorned are capable of horrible things. I was working in the bar not too long ago and saw a woman at closing time slam the door shut on her own shoulder. After a few of us looked at each other with, wth, she came back up to the bar and asked us to call the cops to report her boyfriend's abuse. Apparently they'd just broken up. We didn't call.

132. i am not addressing the OP. i am not addressing a conversation with you. i am addressing the stupid

woman scorned. i thought that obvious since that is the only thing i pulled and discussed. put away the old and tired sexist tripe, woman scorned.

did we talk about this last week? i know i did with someone. and here it is again.

every time i see woman scorned, i will make the same point. men have more issue with being "scorned" than women. quit exclusively giving it to us. it is used as a reason. i do not like it. it is not factual. it is stupid.

and noooo, i do not feel better. thank you

182. Years ago I worked at the same company as a married couple whose marriage ended

in a most callous way.

The husband was out of town when he called home one mid-afternoon. When he asked her what she was doing, she told him she was in bed. In the middle of the day, he asked? I'm entertaining someone, she said. It was one of the assistant plant managers of the company at which they both worked. The husband was devastated & I'm sure that the deep hurt must still be haunting him. They had five young sons.

185. She was a piece of work.

She was beautiful but wasn't well-liked because of her lack of people skills. Also, if I described how scantily her tops were for a professional setting I'd be asking for trouble from the you-know-who's. She was on the hunt for a man with a higher salary & she bagged what she thought was the big prize.

I've often wondered how the ex-husband & five sons are doing. I have no idea, unfortunately.

Coming down hard on people who lie about such crimes would hopefully reduce the urge to do so.


I'm thinking probably not.

Look at the death penalty. Even that isn't a deterrent.


Besides, anybody who would go to the lengths she did is a VERY sick person. No doubt she probably still thinks she had every reason and right to do what she did.

186. I helped an innocent man who was accused of sexual assault. I knew for a fact that

he was innocent, and we proved it before he was charged. I knew the woman who accused him, and she was borderline sociopathic. It was a vengeance accusation. I recorded a conversation in the home of the woman's best friend, that could not be used as evidence in court, but the judge said he would listen to the recording in his chambers. When the judge came out of his chambers, he was red faced furious, and very severely admonished the woman. My friend (who is gay, btw), went to the sheriff's office and tried to press charges against the woman, but the deputies refused, saying that it would cause others to be afraid to come forward with similar allegations if charges were filed. My friend was so crushed, drained, and devastated by these events that he did not have the will to pursue it any further, he just wanted it over.

This whole episode lasted several months, and the poor guy could not believe what was happening to him. He did nothing wrong, and there was not a shred of evidence against him except the woman's testimony. This destroyed my friends life for a long time. He lost most of his "friends", and was afraid that everyone would still think he might be a sexual predator. He went bankrupt from paying legal fees to the lawyer who worked on the case, became depressed, began using cocaine to combat the depression, got busted for selling 3 grams of coke, and ended up doing 1 1/2 years in state prison.

After he got out of prison, he did his probation thing, and moved away, and never returned. He's doing ok now, we are still in contact a few times a year, but his life was permanently and considerably altered by this incident.

I still have the original recording, it's as damning as damning can be; it was definitely as set up, and there have been times when I've actually considered putting it on youtube, but I do not want to bring this ghost of nightmares past back on my friend.

I have played the recording for some of our mutual friends, the few who stood by my friend all the way. The women cried when they heard it, the men wanted blood.

True story, and with more details it becomes unbelievable, how horribly an innocent person be alleged to have committed a crime, yet have no evidence against them except the words of a sociopathic monster, and then have their life ruined in so many ways by the justice system, in a heartbeat.

And you know what he said to me after it was all over?

"No one ever even apologized."

Making a false report should be illegal. Lying to police, not so much...at least until police lying to suspects and witnesses is grounds for dismissal. .police rely on massive lying to get confessions and manipulate witnesses. .it should not be allowed. .

Entrapment is when the police or someone acting on their behalf manages to induce someone to commit a crime he or she otherwise wouldn't have committed. Police lying to suspects to get a confession is just fine and dandy as far as I know. Police lying to witnesses...well, that just kind of depends on the circumstances and how a judge interprets it.

204. The article stated 40 counts

of "lying to police". If the charge was making a false report, it would be a single charge. It appears it must be in writing in PA..I suspect she was asked to write her statement?

§ 4904. Unsworn falsification to authorities. (a) In general.--A person commits a misdemeanor of the second degree if, with intent to mislead a public servant in performing his official function, he: (1) makes any written false statement which he does not believe to be true; (2) submits or invites reliance on any writing which he knows to be forged, altered or otherwise lacking in authenticity; or (3) submits or invites reliance on any sample, specimen, map, boundary mark, or other object which he knows to be false. (b) Statements "under penalty".--A person commits a misdemeanor of the third degree if he makes a written false statement which he does not believe to be true, on or pursuant to a form bearing notice, authorized by law, to the effect that false statements made therein are punishable. (c) Perjury provisions applicable.--Section 4902(c) through (f) of this title (relating to perjury) applies to this section. (d) Penalty.--In addition to any other penalty that may be imposed, a person convicted under this section shall be sentenced to pay a fine of at least $1,000.

A former coworker broke up with his fiancé and she reported him to the police for multiple crimes, the major ones were child porn and selling drugs. She also reported it to where we were employed because he was selling drugs at work (that part was true). The illegal porn accusations weren't valid however.

Within a few days the employer drug tested everyone and 12 people failed, fired immediately. The coworker got arrested on some drug charges and his ex got arrested for filing a false police report on the porn. That one bad breakup caused a huge shitstorm.

103. Aaaaand the jury is in...

At Fri Dec 27, 2013, 03:05 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

This one
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=4236124

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

A callout. One of many for this poster. Make it stop.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Dec 27, 2013, 03:13 PM, and the Jury voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Christ. Transparency Pages are shared all over this board. Hardly a hideable "offense."
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Callouts aren't against the rules any more. DU operates on transparency, and if a transparency page is visible there's nothing wrong with linking to it. The way people can avoid having their bad behavior not highlighted is to not say things (like calling posters "douchebag") that result in hidden posts. LEAVE.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Y'know, some of us are getting really tired of the petty, juvenile bullshit that seems to have infected much of DU lately. I've reached the point where the call-outs, the mud-slinging, the generally infantile behavior seem just as bad on one side of an issue as on another. It's as if y'all are just tryin' to get each other tombstoned, and I didn't think that was the intent of DU. Both of you -- all of you?? -- need to go stand in a corner for a while. And maybe you'll stand there long enough to grow up a little.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

I let it slide.

I dont have any problem with feminists. Just the HoF-ers who feel feminism is there way or the highway. They can't accept that people are innocent until proven guilty. They want the government to ban pornography. They view anyone engaging in consensual BDSM to be misogynist and committing rape violence. It's just radical stuff and I am not the only one that calls them out on it.

False equivalence my ass. I have lived through this. I was falsely accused of spousal abuse and child abuse by my now ex.

I was arrested, jailed and a restraining order was put against me on her word alone. On her word alone I spent over a year clearing my name. Had her mom not came forward and testified on my behalf I would probably never have seen my kids again.

I could go into the whole sordid story, but there is no need. I know what your response would be.

I just truly hope that you never have to find out the way I did that the equivalency is real for many people. And lives are ruined by it.

But...look at the evidence. They can prove the images were uploaded when the husband no longer lived in the home. And they can prove she was in possession of the computer when they were uploaded. So she's kind of screwed.

The forensic evidene in this is strong.

But I dont think this ever goes to trial. This will be a plea deal. A jury and a judge would hammer her if it went to trial.

192. evidence like DNA and a medical exam showing vaginal tearing, bruising, and wounds

Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but the fact is some feel compelled to make that point central to every discussion about rape yet it never comes up in other cases, particularly when the woman is the perpetrator. People can draw their own conclusions as to why that is.

193. That would be strong evidence suggesting rape

But that is only half the battle. Then the problem might be proving the person did it, especially if it was a stranger. People have been released from prison after DNA proves they didnt commit the crime. That's not saying the woman lied about being raped, it is saying she accidentally identified the wrong person.
But ultimately, the law outlines what has to be proven for someone to be convicted. That's all part of the jury instructions.

And yes, I talk extensively about "innocence until proven guilty" all the time in lots of cases. I mentioned it over and over again during the Zimmerman trial (and called a racist by some for doing so). And I told people the same thing during the Casey Anthony trial (and was called crazy for doing so).

And btw, studies show when women are accused of a crime, they have a higher chance of getting their charges dropped than a man does. She also, if convicted, would usually serve a lesser setence than a man would. She'll also get sweeter plea deals. Patriarchy is the reason for that by the way. If feminism is successful, women would be going to prison longer because the stereotyps and gender roles is a big part of the reason the system goes easier on female defendants.
