Figured some here would like to know. Looks like he won't be paying anyone back anytime soon if ever. In jail for child porn.

Truly unfortunate, $350,000 bond to boot. This story spiraled every which way and now completely loose.

Wow is right. I can only think he was doing anything to make money to pay folks. Sad stuff.

I am beyond shocked.  I would never have pegged Shane for any of this.

There are usually tons of warnings before someone gets nailed like this.  He should have plead for mercy publicly on ripping off all the people on consignments, that is really bad karma in and of itself.  Most of the country's citizens believe no one is beyond redemption, amazingly politicians can go to jail and come back and get re-elected as mayors, etc., especially if they have families that are reliant on their influence at some point.  While there is life there's hope.

I still wonder if someone hacked his computer with a remote access Trojan and framed him.

I found it strange that there was a download in process when authorities showed up. You cannot tell a book by it's cover.

When I first saw that, I thought it was joke.  Even if he makes amends with his consignors, that feedback entry will strike a blow to his business.  His company may never recover.

I'm certain bond/probation comes with a no contact order or internet. Kinda hard to run an internet business under those conditions.

It did.  There was a link ATS.  My comments were geared towards once this issue has resolved itself.

You would think that he couldn't refund the money, someone in his family circle etc. did it.  Probably someone in his family could start selling his stuff on their account at same prices.

It should be a MUCH more interesting read AFTER Tuesday!

Arraignments are usually pretty boring events.  Unless there is a plea deal, the most interesting thing will be a trial date.

The problem is, if you've been following this story for the past couple of years, Shane owes a lot of people a lot of money. People stopped consigning to him because he stopped paying - he was using current sales to pay past consignors.

If you read the docket, bail was originally 70K, reduced to 35K. But I don't see anything about making bail, so he's definitely not running the business from jail. No electronic or written communications either. Also, he apparently can't afford a lawyer:

NO THIRD ?PARTY  
   
   

 

COMPUTERS OR OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET. 

Wouldn't this negate any family members running his internet business?

I can't see how they could deny  internet connection and usage by other family members, but they could deny them being present at any location where Shane was present.

I thought this meant no third party could access the internet on his behalf.  

Kind of sucks if you can't access your bank account and end up being found innocent yet in the meantime you've ruined your credit over missed bill payments (and all your bills are e-bills)--or lost your livelihood if you happen to be required to do some online certifications or something.  

Don't get me wrong, people with these kind of obscene and internet based charges pending should not have unfettered access to the internet...but in the modern era it seems there should be some kind of 'activities of daily living' accommodation while the wheels of justice are turning.

There's no realistic way to block access - once you have any Internet access, you can do anything. If you think NetNanny and the library filters actually do anything, check with your local 12 year old (who probably had to set it up for Mom & Dad).

I run my own VPN server, and when I found several coffee shops blocking port 1194, I moved to 443. There's no way other than deep packet inspection (expensive hardware) to tell if I'm accessing an https website or my VPN. It cost me all of three cents last month because I didn't realize that Amazon's snapshot wasn't covered by the free service tier. And I set it up in half an hour while I was in a meeting with nobody the wiser.

So given it's all or none, I understand why the justice system chooses none.
