Microsoft Assists in Child Pornography Bust in Pennsylvania

Google recently helped authorities arrest a 41-year-old man for sharing child pornographic images via his Gmail account. Not to be outdone, Microsoft also is now helping authorities round up suspected child pornography offenders.

Per a tip from the software giant, authorities arrested 20-year-old Taylor James Hoffman. Microsoft alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to the fact that Hoffman had allegedly uploaded illegal images of underage children to his Skydrive account.

According to reports, Hoffman engaged in this activity twice in 2014, using a Microsoft live.com email address. He also allegedly traded the pornography on his cell phone.

Reporters don’t know exactly how Microsoft tracked Hoffman's images, but AOL, Yahoo!, Google and other major internet companies use similar systems to identify potentially illegal user content. In case of John Henry Skillern (the Houston man busted by Google), the offender allegedly stored a trove of videos on his email account.

The newly robust partnership between government and internet companies can help protect the welfare of children and society in general. However, it's clearly a double-edged sword. For instance, you don’t need to be a Florida cybercrime defense attorney to see the potential for abuse or misuse. For instance, what happens if someone accidentally receives a spam-type email that contains a child pornographic image and sends it along to someone obliviously? Or what if a hacker deliberately makes it look like someone downloaded pornography to get that person in trouble?

The list of unfair possible scenarios is long.

The point is that if you or someone you care about stands falsely accused of these types of charges, you may need thorough assistance from a qualified Florida cybercrime defense attorney.
