Sure you can pin the blame on your unsecured router when the RIAA or MPAA comes knocking at your door, but when it’s the FBI and you’re accused of having tons of child pornography, don’t think you’re getting out of this one so easily. A guy in Texas had his home raided and the police found lots of child porn on his computer. When confronted, he blamed his router’s open WiFi connection for the kiddie porn, which everyone knew was BS. Turns out the guy had been looking at the stuff for years and was sending law enforcement on a wild goose chase trying to find out who was distributing child porn on the net.

But the kicker? They found a CD full of it in his home. Cased closed. The sicko appealed but luckily was denied an overturned ruling and is now serving close to five years in prison. So next time the police raid your home for animal porn/illegal MP3s/cockfighting, don’t blame it on the unsecured WiFi router. It’s just not gonna work.
