Child Porn Images On Seized Computers

Postby Gus Sainz » Wed Jan 25, 2006 4:24 pm

“Four computers used as part of an alleged Spokane-based diploma mill operation also stored more than 10,000 images of child pornography, a federal prosecutor said Tuesday.

The statement came after a grand jury indicted Kenneth Wade Pearson on federal charges of possession and receipt of child pornography.”

“Pearson, 30, is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 9 in federal court on the child pornography charges. He and seven others, including accused diploma mill ringleaders Dixie and Steve Randock, were indicted in October on federal charges of wire and mail fraud, money laundering and conspiracy.

Pearson, the Randocks and five other defendants are scheduled to stand trial together in October in U.S. District Court. There are indications some of the defendants may plead guilty before that time and agree to testify as prosecution witnesses.”

For a moment there, I thought that you were talking about Degreeinfo.

This is why legitimate enterpises really need to stay well away from the legal and moral edge.

The alleged fact that these people were involved in child pornography doesn't really provide us with any new information about the legitimacy of the SRU operation. This news is entirely ad-hominem.

But nevertheless, it does communicate something persuasive about these people's values, business practices and general credibility. This certainly isn't the kind of behavior that one associates with academic professionalism.

No, but this quote from the article hints at what might…

“There are indications some of the defendants may plead guilty before that time and agree to testify as prosecution witnesses.”

It will be interesting to see who (as I predicted someone would) strikes a deal.


Here’s another news article about this.

Child pornography is illegal, immoral, and unethical, IMHO. I'm not surprised that this scum was involved.
