Florida Man Charged With Possession of Child Porn

Recently a South Florida man was arrested after investigators discovered that he had in his possession more than 1,000 images and videos of children engaged in sexual activities. According to police reports, the images and videos were stored on an external hard drive attached to a laptop computer. The 50-year-old man has been charged with 200 felony counts of possessing sexual performance child pornography as well as a single count of computer pornography. The man awaits trial in Martin County jail, and bail has been set at $2,010,000.

Probation violations should be considered on a case-by-case basis rather than pursuant to some blanket rule that a type of violation in and of itself would justify probation revocation.

Probation has long been utilized as an alternative to incarceration. Sometimes it is imposed without any incarceration and other times it is imposed to follow imprisonment. In either case, it is a tool available in the justice system that serves many purposes including relieving overcrowding in prisons, helping to rehabilitate those charged with crimes and providing a method of supervising and monitoring those who have committed crimes.
