A man in Florida was sentenced to 12 years in prison for felony charges related to sharing child pornography on the Internet. Sentenced despite the fact that he originally tried to blame his cat for the content on his computer.

When police questioned Keith Griffin, 49, about the pornography he claimed that “sometimes he would leave the computer on and his cat would jump on the keyboard and he would come back to the computer and find strange things on his computer.”

The Smoking Gun reports that the cat has not been charged.
