Why did they even go for him in the fist place?
Has anybody heard of operation Ore in the UK? It looks like a bit of a disaster, who would have thought that stolen credit Card details would have been used to buy illegal porn?

Well, it seems to be a standard operating procedure that anyone in a
high profile case gets accused of possessing "child porn" via
anonymous leaks from the police to the national press. (See the Forest
Gate incident - not only did they tear the guy's house apart looking
for nonexistent "chemical weapons", they "accidentally" shot him, then
they briefed the tabloids that his computer was riddled with evil
images of children. Naturally, he was never prosecuted for same.)

If any UK ISP is willing to NOT do this, you've got my business.
