But ex-GOP staffer will appeal whether “viewing” is crime.
RE:"...contend the state cannot prove that Koch possessed the images, as opposed to merely viewing them because, they claim, he did not save or print them, which they say would constitute possession." --------------------- Unless the attorney is going to argue that the device came factory loaded with the child porn images, it is unfortunate for Koch that inconvenient facts will likely show that he searched for and downloaded the images onto his device. Courts find that downloading images is substantially similar to possession.
What's up with that last name? The nefarious Brothers, Amy, now Rory.
Minnesota has a terrible Koch problem.
Seems like a technicality to me. Mr. Koch, you searched for and looked at child pornography. You should be in prison.
edinawater, I understand what you are trying to say, but the police would also be able to get his search history and the websites he's visited. If it was a case where someone was trying to set him up, like in Blaine a few months back, they would also be able to follow IP addresses, etc. Child pornography doesn't just accidentally show up on your computer.
