Court says secretly filming nude young girls in bathroom isn’t child porn

The Tennessee Supreme Court is vacating the child-porn production conviction of a Knoxville man, named Thomas Whited, who secretly filmed his 12-year-old daughter—and 14-year-old friend—showering, going to the bathroom, and undressing. Although the father recorded the bathroom for two months for sexual reasons, the high court vacated his 22-year sentence because what he filmed did not amount to pornography. The girls were not having sex, the high court reasoned (PDF) Monday, and instead the minors were videotaped in the bathroom performing “everyday activities.”
