Clam Chowder Leads To Child Porn Charge


Man admits allegations, say police:

A Minnesota man has been arrested on child porn charges after his girlfriend attempted to get his computer fixed for him.

Nathan James Ellingson, 33, of Worthington, allegedly told investigators that he had been looking at child pornography when he accidentally spilled clam chowder on his computer which caused it to freeze.

Ellingson's girlfriend then took the computer to a friend of hers in an attempt to get it fixed. During the process, that friend ran across several password protected files and after breaking the code identified questionable material, according to police.

Concerned, he contacted investigators who in turn examined Mr. Ellingson's computer where they purportedly recovered several videos of child pornography.

  1. Re: Article 7/17/08 - Sex sting nabs six. It's really amazng how law enforcement can violate the law (portraying someone they are not-violating yahoo terms of service agreement) to create a criminal (trip up some unsuspecting soul with multiple chats to presumed adults - since it is an adult website)engage them in conversation (that obviously did not appear to be that of a minor). The accused never attempted to meet the so-called minor, and yet now that person's life is ruined. Thanks NJ law enforcement - you've done it again. p.s. you can't convince me this is about safety - it's about the almighty dollar!!!
