    I don’t think it’s possible to delete emails.

    Shouldn’t deleting your email be protected under the 5th amendment?

    He just needs to say it was due to a computer virus. Presto change-o, instantly legal!

      It’s a terrible summary by boingboing. He’s `accused’ of it in the informal sense, i.e. the prosecution and police are making a stink about it in the media to explain their complete lack of evidence and/or to slander the defendant. They are not claiming it is a crime. The actual charge is “promoting prostitution.”

    Wait, having sex with a woman who happens to be your expensive Zumba instructor is illegal now?

    So we found a criminal smart enough to delete incriminating emails… Has he considered running for office?
