Exploiting children is a crime in itself, but seeking out, possessing or sharing child pornography can land you in serious trouble with the law. The possession or distribution of child pornography can be charged at the federal level. What do you do if you've been caught up in someone else's crimes, though? Take for instance this following case, in which a man allegedly used Wi-Fi at his apartment complex to download child pornography. In the wrong circumstances, others besides the person downloading the content could be accused of using their network providers to access this information, particularly if the downloader doesn't want to have the downloads linked back to them. In that case, the person whose Wi-Fi has been used would need to defend him or herself against allegations for crimes they never committed. Fortunately, that didn't happen in this case in St. Cloud.
