Man blames cat for child porn found on computer

After being charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography, a Florida man is blaming his cat for the 1000+ images found on his computer.

"Kitty" porn?
“I swear, I did a Google search for kitty porn!”
“Griffin told investigators that his cat jumped on the computer keyboard while he was downloading music. He said he had left the room and found “strange things” on his computer when he returned.”
No trial yet, but for some reason I can’t see this holding up in court.

Sexting: Child pornography or self-expression?

A researcher at the annual meeting of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences argues that ‘sexting’ (sending nude or provocative pictures to a boyfriend or girlfriend via cellphone) is “is really just a modern variation on playing doctor or spin the bottle.”

“Technology does change things, and there can be very serious consequences,” Prof. Cumming said. “But that obscures the fact that children and young people are sexual beings who have explored their sexuality in all times, and all cultures and all places. A distinction has to be made between nudity and child porn,” he added.

“When a teenage girl knowingly sends provocative pictures of herself to friends or a boyfriend, is she guilty of child pornography or simply practising self-expression?”
