Conviction stemming from job interview upheld

text size: AAA
By Associated Press

A DeKalb man walked into a job interview with aspirations of becoming an FBI agent. He walked out a suspect in a child pornography case and was eventually sentenced to 6 years in prison.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this week upheld Dominick Pelletier's conviction. It found officials didn't violate his rights by searching his home computer after he spoke during the job interview about having photos of naked children.

Pelletier went to a Chicago FBI office for a polygraph test as part of the job-application process and told his interviewer he may have failed the test because he had the pictures at home.

The court says the 35-year-old can't claim a right to remain silent because he was at a job interview, not under arrest.
