GIVEN THAT THE ORIGINAL TRIAL SEEMED LIKE A GROTESQUE MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE, this is good news:

Julie Amero, the substitute teacher who could have received 40 years in jail after porn appeared on classroom PCs, was spared that fate—for now. Instead, Amero will get a new trial after revelations that the original computer analysis was flawed.

Since it was almost certainly malware that caused this, a new trial seems like the least that can be expected here. This case shouldn’t have been prosecuted.

Much more from Mark Frauenfelder.
