Two states tangle with alleged "cyber-terrorist" on Monday charged a 19-year-old Missouri man with guiding young teen-agers to child pornography sites on the Internet and terrorizing a school community. Christian Hunold of Smithville, Missouri faces four child pornography charges along with charges of disorderly conduct, disrupting a school, and threatening to commit assault. Hunold allegedly met children from Hawthorne Brook Middle School in Townsend, Massachusetts in an online chat room and directed them to Internet sites containing pornographic images. He also allegedly sent e-mails threatening to shoot school officials and blow up the building, Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly told reporters. Hunold could be sentenced to 20 years in prison, Reilly said. -- Reuters
