The complaint alleges the devices contained hundreds of pornographic cartoon images, the three files downloaded by the undercover agent along with numerous others, and a file with a graphic banner containing a collage of images depicting child porn which read, “Lets continue distributing child porn via gnutella! This is fun, this is the meaning of file sharing!” Robeson is expected to appear in court on March 22.
