  • There is some hope for sanity.

    Nudity /= pornography.
  • Who uses their work-issued device for personal reasons?

    Seems like a firing, or worse, waiting to happen.
  • Finally, a judge who has some common sense.
  • A crushing blow for insane fear-mongers everywhere.

    She sounds over qualified.
  • It's a Festivus Miracle!

    /someone get this sane judge a cigar.
  • Finally, a little common sense is used by the courts, now that stupid prosecutor needs to learn some.
  • I hope the DA that decided to waste taxpayer money and nearly ruin someone's life gets his comeuppance.

    /He won't.
  • So, is there room for appeal?
  • Perhaps the pendulum is beginning its return from the far right reaches of stupidity and will gracefully return to the Age of Reason?

    You appear to have your left and right confused.
  • Letting this guy off the hook will simply embolden actual child pornographers. He should have been made an example.
  • FTA:
    "A search of his home computer found no evidence of child porn, and social workers found no evidence that the couple's children had been abused."

    And yet the prosecutor decided to go ahead with a trial anyway. So why bother to pay for the investigation if you're going to completely ignore the results?

    No, he's got it right. Not that facts, history, evidence or reason have any effect on you.
  • Eh, he's a football coach in America, modern nobility.
    It probably wouldn't have happened this way if he was a civilian.

    Still, it's good to see.
  • Glad the guy got off and all, but why in hail did this ever see a courtroom?

    I can see police investigating an allegation of kiddie porn, and I can see a DA taking a look to make certain there aren't any concerns. But what kind of horse's ass DA looks at that and decides to torture a normal, successful, law-abiding family man with the worst possible thing a guy like him can be accused of short of mass murder?
  • The judge in this case was formerly a public defender. Had the judge been a former prosecutor, this might have gone in the opposite direction. This is why I never vote for judges who used to be prosecutors.

    I bet he did.

    He played the "nude kids is pornography" card and got pwned.

    Next step is to paint the judge as a pedophiliac sympathizer and call for removal from the bench.
  • The ignorant members of the Grand Jury are the ones that allowed this to go to trial. They should have thrown it out when they reviewed the facts. It is their job to decide what goes to trial and what is B.S.

    I seem to recall years ago there were some cases of one or two being charged with child pornography for pictures of a toddler (or maybe slightly older, like 4-5) breastfeeding. It seems like prosecutors have decided to try anything involving kids and any sort of nudity because its easier then actually making a judgement call, sort of like how zero-tolerance rules in schools have eliminated any notion of common sense. If the argument is that a pedophile could find the images "sexually stimulating", then you're going to have to start prosecuting images of clothed children too.

  • The judge made the right decision. This guy is a dumb ass. Why would you save that on your phone and then give your phone to someone else. The person who turned him in did the right thing and he is lucky the person wasn't the type of person who would have posted on the internet and have nude images of his kids floating in cyberspace for eternity.

    He certainly is lucky, but not for the reasons you stated.

    Glad he didn't go to jail or anything, but he should probably be fired for misuse of school-issued resources. What part of "This isn't yours, asshole!!" don't people understand!!
