Man Claims He Tried To Download SLASH Album And Got Child Porn Instead

According to The Pulse Of Radio, a British man has been banned from being alone with his eight-year-old daughter for up to a year after he accidentally downloaded images of child pornography while attempting to download an album from former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash. Nigel Robinson admitted that he was trying to obtain music by Slash from an illegal file-sharing site, but that when he opened the files, he found not songs but images of young girls.

Robinson said he informed police about the photos at the urging of his wife, telling the Daily Mail, “When I saw these images I wanted to do something about it. I didn’t want anyone else’s children to be exploited in this way.” He added, “I can categorically state 1,000 percent there will be nothing inappropriate on my computer other than the files I told the police about.”

The local social services council recommended that Robinson not be allowed to be alone with his daughter or any other children during the length of the police investigation.

But the investigation could take up to a year before Robinson‘s laptop is returned. He said, “I can understand there needs to be caution. It is a very serious matter, but to be told it may be a year before the conclusion is just madness. I cannot take my daughter to the park, swimming or anything . . . I wish I had just binned the laptop and then none of this would have happened.”
