Woman accused of trying to frame husband with child porn

quote:
CLYMER, Pa. - State police have charged a western Pennsylvania woman with putting child pornography on a computer in an unsuccessful effort to frame her estranged husband.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 42-year-old Meri Jane Woods, of Cherry Hill Township, who also doesn't have a listed phone.

Troopers from Indiana, Pa. say she started the investigation when she came to their barracks on Aug. 14 to report her husband sexually abused children and put images of same on their home computer. Police investigated and determined the images were put on the computer Aug. 11 but that Woods' husband left the residence July 23.

Woods is charged with a felony count of sexual abuse of children for possessing a computer with the images on it, and 40 counts of lying about alleged abuse incidents involving her husband.

Whats scary, is that had she simply put the images on the computer earlier, it would have worked perfectly.

It's not really hard to forge timestamps, be it on the file system or EXIF. Otherwise if she was so savvy he'd probably be in jail, despite the computer also being in her control/possession as well.

Probably not if a competent forensic examination had been performed on the system.

Glad that she got charged with sexual abuse felony count instead of him. No excuse for doing that, no matter what the disagreements were that led to their estrangement.

The problem is that, at that time, the damage has already been done. Kind of like putting a child molester sign in someone's yard. It doesn't matter if it is true or not there are way too many people who will accept it as fact, without any evidence.

Yes, the press does tend to describe a person as an "accused child molester" all too often. Even if legally cleared, the cloud remains.

But it's very convenient: the minute you print "X is an accused child molester", it is automatically true.

Wow... talk about reaching for a nuclear weapon...

Would've been alot easier to just print the pictures off (without header / footer of course, of course)
and march em down to the local police station, slap em on the desk of the duty sergeant, and watch the
fireworks...

What was that line from "How Sex Changed the World?"

I am sure her ex-husband is having the last laugh right now. I know I would be if I was in his shoes. I would die laughing and watching her all the way to jail.

Would they have even bothered? Or would they have said "yep, that there's child porn, dude's one'a them pre-verts, let's bring 'im in... and maybe have him 'resist arrest' a little."

Exactly, why would they bother when a quick conviction could be had? It would be up to the defense to clear his name, and good luck with that if he isn't rich.

Women try this by non-electronic means too:

The FBI says a Texas woman admitted sending ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but only after trying to pin it on her husband.

Shannon Guess Richardson was charged Friday with mailing a threat to the president. The federal charge carries up to 10 years in prison....

Having worked in that environment and with two LEOs in our family, I can say that in our neck of the woods, a computer crimes investigation would be handled appropriately.

Electronic evidence would be secured appropriately. Court-certified forensics personnel and tools would be used to analyze disk images, memory and ROM dumps, cache dumps etc. that are copies made by write-block devices that leave the original data unaltered.

If date stamps were altered, the examination would definitely show it.

I hope that would be true everywhere, and, perhaps, given all the publicity lately about identity theft, there would be no rush to judgement or trial before all the evidence was thoroughly examined.

The Julie Amero case educated a lot of police agencies who thought that having an officer or two with a modicum of training on some forensic tool was sufficient.

In the end, a lot of money was spent, a lot of bad publicity was generated for the justice system, and the civilian law enforcement community learned that they needed to be much more knowledgeable and thorough. Amero suffered needlessly, but at least some reforms were triggered by her ordeal.

In today's world of more technologically educated criminal defense law firms, it would be foolish (and a waste of taxpayer money) for a prosecutor to push a computer crime case without having ensured the forensic analysis was complete, thorough and performed by qualified personnel.

Anyone else getting a whiff of misogyny from some of the responses?

I'm pretty sure that scumbaggery is not sex-specific.

"misogyno" (a word whose definition completely evaded me) is probably too broad a term for what if anything I've perceived.
If 'mysogyno' defined a specific X (of either gender) then yeah, it's expected that some responses are bound to be driven past experience.

I can confirm that.

I don't geddit. Is there some natural linkage between Jones and child porn I do not know about?

Unless the joke is that Jones is more-or-less automatically in favour of something that the government is against.

Bad advice! Doing that could get you hit with a charge of reproducing and possession. Something as radioactive as that you simply don't touch, look, transport, Nothing.

Right.

There was a woman who was a schooteacher in (Connecticut?) a few years ago.

She knew almost nothing about computers.

The school was woefully unprotected against viruses.

When the classroom computer started flashing porn, the local cops decided she had done it deliberately. The statements of the local detective were laughable in their ignorance.
