Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Alex Jones Trial Thrown Into Disarray Amid Child Porn Discovery”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In a court filing Monday, lawyers representing Sandy Hook parents in a suit against Infowars’ Alex Jones say the conspiracy theorist’s defense team sent them “numerous images of illegal child pornography,” apparently by mistake.

The images were buried in a large volume of email documents the court ordered Jones’ team to turn over in late May ― an order they followed through on by turning over the files in a non-searchable format.

A third party hired by the Sandy Hook lawyers to sort and organize the documents into a digitally searchable database discovered an image during that process.

“It is worth noting that if the Jones Defendants had engaged in even minimal due diligence and actually reviewed the materials before production, they would have found the images themselves,” the motion filed Monday reads. “Because the Jones Defendants did not do that, they transmitted images to the plaintiffs that if they were knowingly possessed is a serious federal crime.”

Christopher Mattei, an attorney for the plaintiffs, alerted the FBI immediately, and a subsequent investigation by law enforcement turned up 11 additional images “which had apparently been sent to Infowars email addresses.”
