Child pornography on the Internet is one of the most significant problems that law enforcement faces today. Still, in its infancy, the Internet offers a fast, free exchange of information on virtually any subject matter. One of the most dominant subject matters online is porn, which accounts for billions per year in revenue. While much of this pornography is undesirable to some, it is legal and thus allowed to persist; however, other illegal types exist, such as child porn.
Law enforcement has poured countless resources into the targeting and arrest of individuals who are found to be active in the production, distribution, possession, or sale of child pornography. Due to the particular nerve that child pornography offenses strike throughout the general public, law enforcement, investigators, and prosecutors can sometimes be overzealous in their pursuit of an arrest or conviction. This can lead to negligence in the form of errors in evidence collection or even unethical actions to bridge gaps in evidence that may lead to an incorrect conviction.
