Six years ago, a Tennessee grand jury indicted pastor David Hoschar on a charge of sexual exploitation of a minor after law enforcement officers testified that someone at his IP address had downloaded child porn. What the officers didn't tell the grand jury is that neither of the computers they seized from his home had any actual child porn on it. Nor did they mention that their own experts concluded that the computers had not been scrubbed. Nor did they tell them that Hoschar's router was not secured so someone else could have downloaded the porn. Prosecutors ultimately dropped the charges. But a federal appeals court has just thrown out Hoschar's lawsuit against the officers saying they have "absolute immunity."
