With the growing public awareness of child abuse in general and child pornography in particular, authorities from the local, state and federal levels of government are pursuing charges against alleged perpetrators to a degree which has not previously been experienced. Several organizations, such at the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force have sprung up in response to this alarming social problem.
The ICAC is part of a larger government effort to locate and prosecute individuals who may have been involved in crimes involving child pornography. Additional measures that have been undertaken include tracking down people who use peer to peer (P2P) software programs such as LIMEWIRE and FROSTWIRE. Under aggressive new law enforcement measures, even people who view these programs accidentally may be subject to up to five years in prison.
The unfortunate fallout of the increased attention on child pornography is that law enforcement officials have become overly aggressive when it comes to prosecuting people who they think may be involved. In such an emotionally charged issue, the evidence against people charged with child pornography can be misleading, which in turn can cause misunderstanding by prosecuting attorneys, law enforcement and members of a jury.
