Not Meri WoodsINDIANA, PA – Meri Woods, 43, is looking at a possible nine years in prison after she was found guilty of downloading child porn in an attempt to frame her ex-husband.

About a year ago, Woods told investigators that she’d discovered her husband, Matthew Woods, had downloaded child porn on the family computer.

Police computer experts were able to immediately rule out Matthew as the person who downloaded the images by finding they were date-stamped during a time Matthew had already been forced from the home by a protection-from-abuse order.

Based on the findings, Woods was arrested and charged with a felony count of sexual abuse of children/possession of child pornography and a misdemeanor count of unsworn falsification to law enforcement. She pleaded not guilty and opted for a jury to decide her fate.

Turns out that was a bad move.

“She download in excess of 40 images of different acts of child pornography to the family computer, took it to the state police and said, ‘My husband downloaded all this porn,’” District Attorney Patrick Dougherty told the jury.

He only called up one witness, a state police forensic investigator. Woods’ defense attorney had a rebuttal witness who testified that time stamps on images could be unreliable.

After about 10 hours of deliberation, a jury of six men and six women came to a decision and found Woods guilty of the felony and misdemeanor charges

Dougherty said the misdemeanor conviction is punishable by up to two years in jail and a $5,000 fine, while the felony conviction could bring up to seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Woods is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 15 to give the Pennsylvania Sexual Offenders Assessment Board time to decide if Woods will have to register as a sex offender for up to 15 years.
