82. Indeed.
I think these charges are far too easy to bring, and far too difficult to defend against. Short of operating a RAID array on a second, physical box locked up elsewhere so you can prove the images were in fact planted- something few users in general know how to do- you can't prove you didn't get the images yourself.

Theoretically, the prosecution has to be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were the one downloading the images. Unfortunately, in our day and age, not too many people want to take their chances with a jury when it comes to things like this as they are usually more than eager to return a conviction.
