If you ask me Arizona's laws against dirty pictures, which have some pretty draconian penalties are really religious laws.
For each photo a person is arrested with their is a mandatory 10 year prison sentence which
must run consecutively with all the other mandatory prison sentences.
With hundreds of images seized from this poor schmucks computer he is facing a minimum of
1,000 years in prison. For the victimless crime of looking at dirty pictures.
Sure the this guy is a pervert,
but I think it is a waste of our tax dollars to put him in prison for
the rest of his life and spend $50,000 a year of our tax dollars keeping him there.

A former sheriff’s posse member has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography, authorities said.
Computer-repair technicians contacted the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office on Monday after discovering multiple pornographic images of children on Roger Byg’s laptop, according to a Sheriff’s Office statement.
Deputies executing a search warrant at Byg’s Sun City home on Thursday seized a laptop computer containing hundreds of images of children ages 3 to 14 involved in sex acts with other children and adults, the statement said.
Byg, 73, is facing ten counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
The Sheriff’s Office said Byg resigned from the Sun City posse early last year.
