Who is Julie Amero?

While working on my topic for this semester which included computer viruses and spyware, I came across the story of Julie Amero, of Windham, CT, who had been convicted in court because of spyware.

The crime? Exposing pictures of nude individuals to minors while substitute teaching at a middle school. However, the pictures were a result of spyware attacking the computer, causing an infinite loop of ads to appear.

She could be sentenced up to 40 years for this crime – one she technically didn’t commit!!

I’m going to be keeping up to date on this story…
