Army E-4 was charged with possession of child pornography and was facing the possibility of 10 years confinement, a dishonorable discharge, and a sex offender registration. At his Article 32 hearing, our knowledgeable cross-examination of the government’s forensic computer expert highlighted the government’s inability to prove that our client ever viewed the files of child pornography that were found on his computer.
