We’ve all made those innocent Google searches and come up with results that are far from innocent.  It’s just one of those things that tends to happen.  You may have also downloaded items from the internet and ended up with something very different than what you actually wanted.  Well one young male went to download a Girls Gone Wild video through LimeWire and found images of underage girls instead.  He was shocked and immediately deleted the file.  Then forgot all about it, that is until the FBI came knocking a full year later.

They asked to take a look at his computer and initially found absolutely nothing.  Then they used a software that dug a bit deeper and recovered all of the deleted files.  Which is when they found the illegal photos.  He even asked if he could have gotten to those files if he had wanted to, and the officials claimed that he could not.  Under the advisement of his lawyer, Matthew White age 22, is pleading guilty.  By pleading guilty they’re hoping to cut the 20 year sentence down to 3 and a half years.  Of course he’ll still have 10 years of probation as well as be a registered sex offender.  It turns out that several people have had issues with accidentally downloading child porn while using LimeWire.  It’s always charming to hear about a modern day witch hunt.  Just admit you did it (even if you didn’t) and we’ll save your wicked soul!
