HR Strange But True!
January 06, 2003

A Forth Worth, Texas, businessman has been charged with possessing child pornography after a photo of a nude boy appeared onscreen during a presentation he gave at work, according to the Associated Press.

James Andrew Smith had finished a PowerPoint slide show at at Exel Inc. on Sept. 4 when he tried to open another document on his laptop computer. The image of the young, nude boy appeared on screen, according to the coworkers interviewed by police.

Smith blamed the image on a computer virus. But authorities later found child pornography on computer disks seized from him, according to a police report. The company also turned over 65 pages of printed child pornography allegedly found in Smith's desk, the AP reports.

He was held on $300,000 bond on two counts of possessing child pornography and one charge of promoting child pornography.

Smith was fired from Exel, a Fort Worth-based computer logistics company. He has also resigned as pastor of Landmark Baptist Church, where he had served for 31/2 years.
