I'm thinking that the conviction, if not the investigation that led to the conviction, was based on more than there was more than just hidden pictures on his PC.

I kinda agree with you, although is a lot I don't know about computers beyond just using and running most common programs. But when it comes to something like this, it would seem that the authorities assesed the totality of the situation; it must have been something else this guy had done or some other circumstanial evidence, or something.

But, as you see in a lot of stories, there are a lot of prosecutors out there that will retrospectively 'build' a case where there was not one until they chuggged and plugged one together.
