Background (this is a repost with more details):
1 or 2 years ago, when i was 15 or 16, I got redirected to a shady porn site that had some questionable stuff. I was stupid at the time and disregarded this. It was a user-upload, youtube - style site. I used the site only for what i believed to be LEGAL ADULT porn. I probably visited the site sporadically for maybe a month or so. I never downloaded anything and I don't remember clicking on anything that would be illegal or constitute child porn.
I read that under federal law, "accessing" is illegal, but looking through news, court cases, etc. I've never seen anyone charged for this. Do prosecutors go after this? Also, hypothetically, would anyone be able to construe viewing as receipt, or attempted possession?Also, hypothetically, under federal (not state) law, would one ever be in trouble if one viewed anything illegal without downloading, or having anything illegal on ones hard drive. Is this what the law means by "accessing" ?
