State police have charged a western Pennsylvania woman with putting child pornography on a computer in an unsuccessful effort to frame her estranged husband.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 42-year-old Meri Jane Woods, of Cherry Hill Township, who also doesn't have a listed phone.

You have to wonder just how common this kind of thing is, especially in bitter divorce or breakup cases. The scary thing is that - had the police not done a proper investigation, and the guy had been charged - most people would be calling for him to be tortured to death by the other inmates.

I had false charges filed against me - it is VERY common

Thank GOD I was able to prove I was not at home at the time (not only that, I was in my attorney’s office, on the phone setting up a court date with the judge- she screwed up royally)

But I found web sites on her computer dedicated to framing your husband. One had the title “So, now he’s in jail..; what’s next?”

Any man in the middle of an ugly divorce who is charged with such activity needs to know this story is out there.

I've heard it's possible to put child porn into somebody else's computer remotely.

Does anybody know if that's true?

pre-internet, the accusation was so universal that it was included in the generic forms.

Very. Especially in the '80s and early '90s. Some are still in jail. And prosecutors LOVE to nail people for child sex charges. Makes great press.

“You have to wonder just how common this kind of thing is, especially in bitter divorce or breakup cases. “

And the funny part is that the majority of single women reading this will, within the hour, lament on the fact that there are so few men willing to commit to marriage.

In my view this all boils down to the inherent evils of state licensed marriage.

False charges by women against men are very common nowadays, especially in corporate environments, where men invariably lose.

People filing false charges against ANYONE should have to pay the costs of the investigation AND serve MANDATORY jail time. Isn't providing false info to the police a felony in many areas?

Me too. But while I was staying with my best friend, I made sure to buy something every time I left his house. I kept the receipts because they all have a date and time on them.

I drove the speed limit everywhere I went so that all the times would jibe.

I knew that when I was at his house, he or his wife would alibi me, and when I was at work, the biometrics at the access gates would be solid proof.

Yes. There are a host of viruses and other malware that allow you to take over a computer and put whatever you want on it, often in hidden files the owner of the computer doesn’t even know are there and can’t see on a standard OS.

This is similar to the fact that it isn’t difficult to break into your car and hide meth inside the doors, then report you to the cops. Same of course applies to your house, etc.

We’re not nearly as safe as we often think we are.

Under the Law of Moses, a false accuser was subject to the penalty for whatever he had accused another of. Which often included the death penalty.

I think that makes perfect sense.

My son has been watching videos from a DefCon conference. One of the speakers talked about such a case, where all kinds of incriminating evidence was found on the guy’s computer. Lucky for him, his ex-wife did not know about date-time stamps on files, and none of the evidence dated from when he still lived with her (he had left the computer in the house when he left).

I wonder if this is the same case, or a similar?

The scary thing is that - had the police not done a proper investigation, and the guy had been charged - most people would be calling for him to be tortured to death by the other inmates.

I am sad to say that most Freepers would be calling for his immediate execution or at the least, a long prison stay in which this man would be repeatedly raped by other inmates. And anybody defending this man and calling for a fair trial would be absolutely ridiculed and shunned.

I don't think people realize just how easy it is to get framed for something you did not do in modern day America.

All it takes is one false accusation to utterly and totally destroy your life. Sadly, this man is also tarnished. Even though the accusation has been proved false, he shall forever more live under a shadow of guilt.

Cherry Hill is in New Jersey, not Pennsylvania.

Cherry Hill is to Philly what the San Fernando Valley is to Los Angeles.

Then the corporation hires an outside lawyer to investigate, despite having its own underworked legal department, this to “guarantee impartiality”, the lawyer is a woman (of course), who assures the accused that no, men don’t always lose, and there is a man out there, she instantly pulls out an example, all ready for such conversations, who she says won a million dollars suing a corporation over sucha false accusation. And in the end, the guilty is found guilty. Not very guilty (he keeps his job), but guilty anyway and penalized.

Hmmm. I suspect he won’t remarry, either.

Recently there was commentary in another thread that struck me... the freeper was talking about the dating scene and pointed out that with feminism and technology it has cheapened relationships to the point that the present dating scene and “hook up” culture is just completely fraught with an overwhelming sense of “suspicion”.

I think I am coming to hope that I never get married and have kids. I had a discussion last year with guys on a construction gang I was overseeing... they were all Navajos... and one of the guys, a heavy equipment operator said, “But who is going to bury you when you die? That's why you have kids... so someone can burying you”.

It left me wanting to just wander out into the desert, blow out my brains and let the coyotes and bobcats take care of the carcass.

Happened to a friend of mine. His (still in the closet at the time) lesbian wife and her lover did it, then wife filed for divorce and managed to have him stripped of custody and visitation of his two beautiful little girls, then moved out of state with the girls and the girlfriend. My heart just broke for him and for his girls.

Here’s a clue...... check any devices that go with your child to visit the other parent. If it’s linked/synched to your phone it can give the other parent access to all sorts of opportunities. So I generally recommend that no device synched to any device of yours goes to the other parent period. A smart phone? Put it on a separate line/account.

Good luck getting a DA to prosecute. At best you can file a civil suit AFTER you life and assets are destroyed but no lawyer will represent you pro-bono. In the unlikely chance you are victorious you will be bankrupted by legal fees.

As the recipient of such accusations, I can assure you that there was absolutely NO ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES for the ex-wife. None.
