Ignorant, and probably underfunded, school administrators refusing to admit their own negligence, school computers still running Windows 98 and IE 6, police "computer experts" alleging a pop-up is purposefully accessed, a clueless District Attorney denying the truth and refusing to prosecute, a judge refusing to allow expert computer testimony, all came together to result in Ms. Amero being arrested, charged and convicted of four counts of "risk of injury to a minor, or impairing the morals of a child." For what, you ask? A Trojan Horse displaying pop-up porn on her classroom computer!
Think you will get a jury of your peers if you are ever charged with a computer crime, Slashdotters? Think you and your attorney will even be able to educate a judge and jury on how computers and the Internet work? Think again and read Julie Amero's story."
