Yep, I started a thread about this in 2012. We have cruised along more or less, thinking we had helped him by controlling his access to the internet, but we recently found a stolen iPod touch with internet in his room and lots of illegal child porn images. VERY DISTURBING. Trying to figure out what to do. Here is the original thread: http://www.conductdisorders.com/com...-something-emergency-again.50928/#post-559308 I guess we are considering turning him in, because all of the images are illegal. I think even cartoon child porn images are illegal in the US. He has Asperger's. He also has borderline intellectual disability and the last time(only time) he was an inpatient in a psychiatric hospital, he came home with new tricks and ideas, so we are afraid sending him to be around more sophisticated teens. Also, we found he has frontal lobe brain damage and focal seizures that show damage in area of impulse control, so there are organic issues as well. WTF do we do now? He is a few weeks away from turning 16. He is now the only child in the house and my husband is installing security cameras all over the house and yard, so perhaps this is a safer place for him than a jail, but we don't have resources to help him therapeutically. We are still totally lost. I have written to some pedophile experts at major universities asking for contacts or resources for therapy, because we can't seem to find any on our own. Is he a criminal for downloading images? Should he be prosecuted as such? I mean, this comes with a permanent record, even as a juvenile, right? He has autism, so I suspect he would like, DIE in juvie. He has no self-preservation skills at all. Anyone want to chime in on this?
