Peter Macdonald - Arrested On Possession Of Child Porn After Techs Discover Child Porn Image Used As Background Image On Laptop
Lindenhurst, IL. (ThaLunatic Daily) -- Dumb: You ship your computer off to a computer repair facility loaded up with child porn. Dumber: You use a child porn image of a naked boy as your screen saver, making absolutely SURE the techs (and police) learn all about your sick fetish.
Peter Macdonald, a 57 year old Lindenhurst, Illinois man has been arrested and charged with possession of child pornography, after a Kansas technology firm discovers illicit child pornography images on his computer.
According to police, Macdonald sent his laptop computer to ResQ Systems, a computer repair facility in Olathe, Kansas, to have a hard drive replaced on his computer.
When technicians were unable to load up the computer, they contacted Macdonald for the user name and password, according to Lou Archbold of the Lake County attorney's office.
When technicians succeeded in starting up the computer, they discovered a pornographic image of a young boy as the desktop background of the laptop. Technicians also located several files they suspected contained child pornography, said Archbold. The company then contacted police.
Olathe police sent the computer to the FBI for further analysis, who then contacted Lake County Police.
Police arrested Macdonald at his home. He was later released on a $10,000 bond.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
It's great to know that shriveled penis pedophiles like Macdonald give police an easy catch now and then. Unfortunately, a bleeding heart judge will likely let Macdonald off the hook with minimal jail time - and he'll just learn to cover his tracks better next time. Until then, we sincerely hope the boys in county lockup teach Macdonald the jail house meaning of the word 'hard drive'.
