[WATCH’] Ex-Cop in Prison for Possessing Child Porn to Remain in Jail Until He Decrypts Drives

One of the iPhones was unlocked by the suspect, but he refused to provide passwords of the encrypted hard drives claiming that he has forgotten their passcode.

Rawls remains imprisoned in the federal detention center, Philadelphia and will stay there until he agrees to comply with the court order.
