When Sebastien Boucher stopped at the U.S.-Canadian border, agents who inspected his laptop said they found files containing child pornography.
But when they tried to examine the images after his arrest, authorities were stymied by a password-protected encryption program.
Now Boucher is caught in a cyber-age quandary: The government wants him to give up the password, but doing so could violate his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination by revealing the contents of the files.
This article goes on to say,when he sees that he has downloaded child porn he deletes it. BUT....there are encrypted files with very leading names (i.e. 2 year old diaper change, pre teen bondage) that would cause one to believe they are indeed files of a child that could possibly still be in the hands of their abuser (i.e. "Disney girl" detailed here http://tinyurl.com/2qwx78 and http://tinyurl.com/2ne83y a transcript,skip down to highlighted RUSSIA,starts there)
A judge has since ruled, but these were the options as I see them.
Can (should?) he be compelled to incriminate himself in order to POSSIBLY remove children from being sexually abused?
Should they drop the charges in exchange for the password?
Give him immunity on the files that the password opens?
