873 Counts of Sexual Assault on a Child, Delta / Montrose County

A Delta, Colorado man (Delta County, Near Montrose County) was recently charged with 873 counts of Sexual Assault on a Child.  When I read this Associated Press story as reported through 9news.com, my immediate reaction was, "you have got to be kidding."  I also read all the comments and reactions to this article that were posted on another website.  Without exception, every person assumed this man was guilty.  Most of them volunteered to execute him based on no more evidence than a short, sensational news article.  This is a common mindset we encounter with juries.

Douglas County Colorado Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child

Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child (Child Pornography) charges are increasing rapidly in Douglas County, Colorado, and the Sheriff's office there has a new way of capturing those in possession of child pornography.  They are using software that can identify images located on home computers using "peer to peer" file sharing.  An article posted through 9News.com on this subject, was fascinating.  Sexual exploitation of a child is terrible thing.  The very words can create feelings of anger that may keep us from being open to the idea that the accused person may be innocent.  While I am concerned about the affects pornography, and especially child pornography has on our society, and upon the victims, I am also concerned about other issues as well.
