Not Guilty? The 15 Most Ridiculous Things Blamed On Google

4. UK Pervert’s Child Video/Photograph Addiction

Date: May 21, 2008

Repeat sex offender William Dalgleish was arrested for possession of over 16,000 images of child p*rnography at his Lockerbie, Scotland home. Defense attorney Susan Burns stated her 67-year-old client felt Google was to blame for his addiction because it provided easy access to obscene content: “He feels that he would not have committed these offences [sic] if this information was not so freely available…He feels if companies like Google did not provide access to such sites, he would not have committed the offences [sic].” We're surprised this excuse hasn't been used on To Catch a Predator.
