Julie Amero

Awhile back, I posted an article about Julie Amero, a Norwich, CT substitute school teacher who was convicted of “endangering students by exposing them to pornographic material displayed on a classroom computer.” Feel free to read the article for more details.

According to Elizabeth Wood’s excellent blog Sex in the Public Square, Ms. Amero will get a new trial because an examination of a computer hard drive apparently contradicted evidence in court.

This is very good news, as the teacher faced up to 40 years in prison for something she did not do. Click here for an additional post.

  1. People are crazy. We’ve completely lost sight of the idea that sometimes accidents happen. To me, the law she was accused of breaking was clearly for those who purposefully expose children to pornography. God forbid we use a little judgment or common sense.
