A four-month conditional sentence was handed to a man who fought Canada's child pornography laws all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada. John Robin Sharpe was allowed to stay in his Vancouver apartment instead of getting jail time for possession of child porn. Sharpe said the two boys featured in the pictures he was caught with were happy not to be identified. Sharpe said Canada's child porn laws actually hurt children. (Sharpe was ordered to follow a number of conditions, including being under house arrest from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. He was also ordered to stay away from children under 18-years of age.)
