GO TO JAIL FOR RECEIVING JUNK E-MAIL has a fascinating posting about going to jail on child pornography charges, even when not actively searching for and downloading child pornography. The government can recover files on computer hard drives--even those that were never looked at and deleted--and can bring charges of possession of child pornography. This phenomenon effectively gives the government carte blanche to arrest and throw people in prison. Be sure to read the reader comments at the end of the posting.
