29. owning kiddie porn...
does more than lead someone to buy more or take more pix. For a small percentage of the population, vicarious pleasure loses its thrill and they move up to the real thing. The pedophile starts with kiddie porn, but eventually moves on to hanging around playgrounds looking for kids to exploit.

That said, from your description the prosecutor was out of line. There were many people with access to the computer over a long period of time, with no evidence singling out any one of them and a suspect timeline to boot.

The attorney likely pursued the defense he believed would be the most likely to lead to dismissal.

$300 to expunge the record is to be expected. And yes, the well off can afford the legal services needed to clean up such messes, while the rest of us have to go on with unearned black marks on our records.
