A coworker saw a naked child in the photos section of the man's phone and reported him to the police. He was arrested, charged with possession of child pornography, fired from his job, and had to spend thousands of dollars on legal fees to defend himself. He was ostracized, vilified, and had to wait several months for the trial that exonerated him.

When it comes to any accusations of child porn or child abuse the person is immediately guilty until bankrupted and proven innocent.
