81. I understand your emotions.
I'm a convicted felon, and so I've been through the whole process myself. I know that it is expensive and terrifying. Trust me - you have my symapthies. I guess I'm trying to look at the situation from more of an academic standpoint, which is easy for me to do because I'm not involved with things. I don't mean to come across as callous or indifferent - I apologize if I have come across that way.

I have to strongly disagree with you that discounting the possibility that the the images were downloaded at Restronics is a reasonable thing for the prosecutor to do. You bring up the fact that regulations against viewing porn should be a reason not to suspect someone at Restronics of doing it. If someone is willing to commit a felony, would company regulations against it stop them from doing it? Nobody commits a felony if they don't think they can get away with it. As far as drawing attention to their activities, I could just as well say that calling the police was a way of diverting attention from their activities. Maybe someone caught them, and this was their way of proving that it wasn't them who did it.

It's a fairly commonplace thing, though, for techs to turn in people for child porn. Perhaps the prosecution didn't suspect it because it is so commonplace, though I don't really know.

So how do you explain the fact that we found the same thing on my computer the day that it was returned to me? And how do you explain the fact that their was a 7 month gap between the time that the file was accessed at Restronics and the time that they called the police?

I really can't explain those things. There may be some sort of innocent explanation, but even if there is an innocent explanation then it still seems to me that the evidence was contaminated. It strikes me odd, as well, that they waited seven months to inform authorities. Somthing does stink, IMO, but I'm just not sure what it is.
