A Florida man accused of downloading more than 1,000 images of child pornography is blaming the offense on his cat, according to published reports.
Keith Griffin of Jensen Beach is charged with 10 counts of child porn possession after detectives found the images on his home computer, the Associated Press reports.
Investigators say Griffin told them his cat jumped onto his computer keyboard while he was downloading music. After returning to his machine following a brief trip to another room, he found "strange things" had happened to the machine. He said his cat frequently hopped on the keyboard when the PC was left on.
The 48-year-old is being held on $250,000 bond in the Martin County jail. It is unclear if the cat was neutered. ®
