Posted: 8-Aug-2003 10:49PM CDT

The FBI and agents of Kentucky's attorney general have seized several computers owned by the Transportation Cabinet. Computers were seized from the cabinet's main offices in Frankfort and from other undisclosed cabinet facilities. State Auditor Ed Hatchett's office reported that 212 computers at the cabinet had been used to access 20,000 pornographic images during 24 days of reviewed Internet activity. It has been alleged that some of the images viewed included child pornography; using interstate commerce, in this case this Internet, to access child pornography is a Federal crime.
