Comment Re:Go to the police! (Score 2) 122

An acquaintance of mine has been sitting in County for five months so far for this with no trial, just a two minute pleading of not guilty in front of a judge.

He selected all of the top downloads on emule or something like that and one video happened to be a plant.

No other priors, no evidence of actively searching this out. He said he didn't even know he had downloaded it because he hadn't gone through the files yet.

I do believe him, and what we've heard from the public defender corroborates his explanation.
