Accidentally by not knowing the victim is not of adult age.

Precisely.

Many porn sites these days even make up their models to look like babies.  These guys are even sicker than most.

Or you download in bulk and don't know what it is.....You can download say 1.000 Scifi books in one zip file. If there is one other file between you wouldn't know it.

Not enough info in the linked article to make any assumptions as to any of the charges.

Indecency with a male- was homosexual activity illegal back then and the charge isn't valid today? From the info given, who knows? It doesn't say with a minor.

That's all irrelevant to the OP. Downloading books didn't happen back then, far as I remember.

If it was on your computer you'd have no idea who downloaded it there. The FBI in America is suspected of doing this to get a Korean(chinese) to spy or go to jail.  I'd want to see more than a couple pictures to vote guilty, you don't know what is on your PC.

It answers a question asked earlier in the thread. With just 9 posts so far it should not be too difficult to follow along.

Did you even read the linked story? The one that mentions possessing child pornography as well as the sexual assault charges.

Only you or the people to whom you allow access to your computer can download material and data to your computer  except in the case of some viruses and malware the origin of which can be traced via digital forensics.

The term ' child sex abuse' is a clue.

Some of the posts here are truly disgusting !

now go censor and warn me for saying so !!!!!!

its possible this bloke isn’t guilty (his trial will settle that) but Aussie police ain’t stupid when it comes investigating and charging people for perverse crimes such as sex abuse, and or of minors - paedophilia is concerned ... they are as sharp as tacks!

Which posts are disgusting? I see no defense for crimes like his.

Maybe read again?
