The "Porn Sabotage" Defense

Brilliant...

NEWS.com.au - (December 14, 2004) - A Sydney judge has reduced the jail sentence of a former employee of a leading childcare provider, accepting the man's defence that he downloaded child pornography to "sabotage" his boss's career.

David Peter Allan Jubb, 24, was sentenced in September by Magistrate Robert Abood to 12 months' jail after downloading more than 100 pornographic images on to a laptop computer issued by his employer, Communicare.

He was convinced his boss would shoulder the blame for the illegal material.

He told Burwood Local Court he did not download the material for personal gratification, but rather to get revenge on his boss, Carter Robinson.

It's so much better than the lame, "research" defense...

Anecdotal, of course, but of all such porn cases that have come through my office, never have they been for such a relative handful of porn images.

I think I've read this very same excuse, err, rationalization, err, defense by people who write viral programs...you know, someone made them do it, thereabouts.

Now we know why Townshend wrote Let My Love Open The Door.... it was the door to the daycare center...

Castration is the only answer for these folk.

Was the laptop his or did his boss use it?

Why did he have to go as far as 100 images?

The defendant seems to be lying.
