    Default Viewing a Questionable Photo on a Computer

    I heard about someone online who either got sent some vacation pictures online or was looking at some european vacation pictures online and later looked closer at one of them and one of them he thought one could possibly seen as something maybe midly pornographic, along the lines of Bronzino's An Allegory with Venus and Cupid painting. So deleted it, destroyed it, didn't show anyone or distribute it and got rid of it a few years ago and is no longer in possesion of it or the pc.

    PS I have a similar question up but needed to edit it but couldn't. Thanks.

    You "heard about someone" who got rid of some vacation pictures a few years ago?

    Nothing is likely to happen.

    Yep, I heard about this and this person was looking at or had some vacation pictures and one of them was similar to Bronzino's famous painting but was a photograph. So that person couldn't be charged with anything now? in that situation? The pc that the picture came up on is probably destoyed too by now as it was many years ago, if someone still has it and the Hard drive happened to be examined and saw one questionable picture similar to Bronzino's, would and could they figure out who had the pc at that time years ago, and if they decided the picture wasn't innocent, could they charge that person who is no longer in possesion with that PC and destoyed the picture from years ago. Would that be enough evidence to bring a trial or charge that person with?
    Also could they actually charge that person with possesion of a child pornography picture if they deemed it to be that without that person in possesion of such a picture now and they saw it was from years ago that the person had the picture? Do you have to actually possess say something like that to be charged with it anyhow, if it is no longer in your possesion in anyway?

    If the picture is not in your possesion, and you have not seen it it several years, and the authorities have not arrested you or questioned you about this picture. Then I fail to see your problem.

    Not all pictures of nude children are pornographic. Take the pic's mother's take of their kids in the bathtub. Those are legal. Now take that same kid with an adult in that bathtub having sex, that is illegal. See the difference?

    Thants true, guess it's just possible that the PC/hard drive could still exist out there somewhere which if it had a deep look on it that it might show somewhere that a picture came up and might not be considered art? nothing partiularly shocking or disturbing, vulgar or anything just possibly some could see as just crossing the line?
    Just wondering it might be possible that the PC/hard drive may still exist even though its been several years since that person had possesion of the PC, the authorities have not been involved, just wondering if someone did a massive hard drive look at it they might see that 'one' picture had been clicked on online.
