Child molester caught red-handed thanks to DSi camera photo



A 46-year-old British man may have gotten away with molesting a child, had the victim not been quick-witted enough to catch his criminal act on her DSi camera. Thanks to a 10-year-old girl and her game system, pedophile John Fisher is now enjoying life behind bars. 

The man had no room to wheedle out of a sentence with the damning action caught on camera, and admitted to touching the girl inappropriately. He now gets to spend three-and-a-half years in jail, and probably won't have a very nice life after that.

"She was brave enough to come forward and report the incident and give us a full and accurate account of what had gone on," said Detective Constable Annabelle Bunn. "Although Fisher initially denied assaulting her, when confronted with the image he had no choice but to concede he had done exactly as she had reported."

With kids getting access to more and more technologically advanced "toys," they're nicely armed to catch these clueless pricks in the act. Fisher's charge comes just weeks after a priest was caught with child porn on his DS, too. Nice to know that there's some advantages to out-of-touch old men who remain clueless about gaming's advancements.

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts

To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-road use. Most important of all, this thing plays sounds from Mario Kart. Hot damn! I want to see videos of some kids' years being made. [Via Tiny Cartridge]more
