According to a release from South Carolina U.S. Attorney Strom Thumond Jr., 21-year-old Christine Vetter (pictured, left) admitted in federal court that she operated a Web site offering the items for sale. Vetter said that, from November 2000 to March 2002, she sold and mailed about $9,000 worth of soiled underwear and other used hygiene and sex-related items on the Web site while she was a student at Clemson University. The woman faces up to five years in prison or a $250,000 fine on charges of "mailing indecent and filthy substances." The case was investigated by U.S. Postal Service agents. The investigators learned about Vetter's business when they spotted a letter addressed to her, labeled that it contained child pornography. The envelope did not contain any child pornography, inspectors said. They later determined that that the sender of the letter was a disgruntled customer of Vetter's Web site. Vetter's site is no longer operating. [>(][>(][>(][>(][>(][>(][>(][>(][>(][>(][>(][­>(]

How can the stuff be indecent if people are wanting to buy it? That should get thrown out IMO. That is assuming the customers knew they were buying some chics used/worn stuff for some fetish, and didn't think it was supposed to be new/clean...

Well....she's gotta somehow be able to earn tuition money.

Ok, so let me get this right... Does this only have to do with USPS stuff? Can the Police send still send "gross" evidence through UPS or FedEx? How about cattle breeders sending semen to another breeder? How about drug-testing operations...Can they send samples via UPS or FedEx? Anyway, it doesn't look like the feds spent a whole lot af time figuring-out her bisiness. She PROBABLY cooperated with them and told them EVERYTHING about her internet life. Right?

I must say that some people have SICK fettishes...this is absolutely gross to me. BUT, I would think that if someone wants to buy her soiled panties, they should be able to. Even though they are SICK perverts. Hell, my house is practically a GOLD MINE of soiled diapers...anyone want to buy some Huggies with poopie in it?!?!?!

does this mean all i need to do to open up a can of shitstorm on someone is drop an envelope in the mail to them with "child pornography" written on it?

Do they not have routine trash pickup in your neighborhood? Or do you just like to keep them all?
Link Posted: 7/9/2002 6:43:35 PM EDT
I'm guessing that if she had shipped her goods via UPS or FedEx she would be in the clear.

Prestained underwear, now i won't need to stain them myself!

Strange, the USPS is probably pissed off because she didn't mark the box "biohazard" and pay the additional fees. he he

I was wondering about that also...I think the wording on the back should be "THIS IS NOT CHILD PORNOGRAPHY!!!" I think its a bit obviously a joke if someone writes that it IS, but its a little more sinister to claim that it isnt, IMHO.
