they said i had child pornography but there are no pictures of children on my computer.
Who is "they" and how do "they" know what is on your computer?
To add to the list of unanswered questions, what does "accused" mean; have you been charged? If you have been charged then I conclude that the are two possible explanations: (1) you have a tremendous defense or (2) law enforcement found such material on your computer. Material that you believe "is not on your computer" because you took step(s) to remove it may nevertheless be "on your computer" and recoverable by forensic computer experts. If you've been charged you need legal representation immediately.
You are potentially facing VERY serious charges. Address this question in person with an attorney immediately.
There is no confidentiality online.
The accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
