Yes. The prosecution wanted there conviction rate up at all costs. Even if it ment sending an innocent 16 yo kid to prison to be raped the rest of his life.

Petraman, if that hardware firewall is built into your router then get a software one too.
You can get a free one at Zonelabs Zonealarm


btw - the kid is on 18 months probation, not in jail.
