Wireless Networks and the Law

A Texas man who was convicted of possessing child pornography tried to use his open WiFi (wireless) network as a defense, saying that someone else could have used the same network to traffic in pornographic images.

Guess what? His wireless connection COULD have been used illegally by someone else to download child pornography, but it doesn't matter. It was his connection, and he's guilty.

Scary thing for those of you who might have wireless networks at home and no security.
