Child porn investigators raid NASA

John Oates / The Register | April 3 2006

NASA's Washington headquarters was raided last week by investigators searching for evidence of child pornography.

James Robinson, a NASA manager, came to the Feds attention when he responded to online ads for child pornography last year, Smoking Gun reports.

He used the name Jim Saron and sent pictures and videos to several undercover investigators. He told investigators the pictures were from P2P networks like Kazaa. His IP number was quickly tracked to NASA and his home computer.

Investigators contacted NASA, which used Web ConText to monitor Robinson's web use. The software picked up 67 images of "apparently minor females".

This was enough probable cause for a search warrant to be issued.
