Radio reporter caught in child-porn sting

I don’t know what to think of this!  I found this article this evening and I am perplexed.

First of all this is the second article I found pertaining to our discussions that ocurred in my hometown. Read about my first. Now here we are again, this time there was no intent, that I know of, to engage in any solictiation of minors.

However, he was arrested because he distributed material containing child pornography. This man is a reporter with a local radio station.  Looks like gridlock was not the only kind of trafficking he dealt with.

What isn’t clear is how they caught him.  I suppose they got lucky when he chatted with an undercover officer.  They don’t disclose what the nature of their conversations entailed.  What is scary is that this man was using either a computer at work or one at home to distribute this material.  He obviously thought this was in the ‘privacy’ of his own home. 

I am curious as to what his intentions were when he shared his files with others. My husband has gotten his share of emails, I am not aware if he forwards them, but I know for certain they do not contain child pornography, but still my thought is…when are the authorities going to come knocking on my door?
