73. Couple things
Wouldn't it have been the decent thing, knowing that his computer had been in someone else's possession for several months prior to notifying the police, to at least try to ascertain when the pictures were downloaded before charging the owner with a felony?

I would think that the prosecution probably discounted the possibility that they were added by the computer techs, given that there are most likely company regulations against that and the computer techs would've drawn attention to their own illicit activity by informing authorities.

So your assumption that the prosecution believed that they could prove that Jim downloaded the images when they charged him is dead wrong, because they hadn't taken the first step to ascertain when the images were downloaded.

I'm not sure what the prosecution assumed, though I don't think it is unreasonable to think that they assumed they can prove something if they charge someone with a crime.

I'm just discussing possible alternatives - take a deep breath. :hi:
