Intending philosophy students and others have their favourite examples of simple conundrums.  Two of these are is a rose red at night and does a falling tree make a noise in the forest when nobody is there to hear it.  A similar thinking process seems to be behind the defence of a blind man charged with viewing child porn. As a retired eyecare professional the case has a significance for me but let`s assume his defence is unchallenged and no expert witnesses testify.  How would my reader react if s/he were on the bench?
