Guy buys car at auction. Used to be owned by a man convicted of child sexual abuse and molestation.
Guy finds a cell phone wedged in the seat. Full of child porn.
What would you do (after turning in the phone, of course?)

The Orlando Sentinel reports that this week prosecutors filed charges against 62-year-old Jesse A. Brown for child pornography. Brown was previously convicted in 1992 of sexually abusing two 8-year-old girls in South Dakota, and sentenced to roughly 19 years in prison. In 2012, Brown relocated to the Winter Garden area of Orlando. Soon after police started receiving complaints that Brown was attempting to lure children into his car.
Police arrested Brown and he was later convicted of failing to register as a sex offender in Florida. He was sentenced to nearly two years in federal prison followed by 10 years probation.
Brown’s 2005 Pontiac was Grand Prix was towed and sold. When the new owner cleaned out the car he came across Brown’s phone and saw pornographic images of children. The owner immediately contacted the authorities, who questioned Brown about the phone.
Brown said he collected child pornography for several years, which he used “as a crutch to keep from acting out physically against children,”
Police arrested Brown on Monday and he remains jailed in Orange County.
So when you are shopping for a used car, check the CarFax, check for open recalls, and make sure your next ride doesn’t have any child porn in it.
