FALMOUTH — A Falmouth District Court judge will decide whether images of child pornography that a state trooper found on a Coast Guardsman’s phone should be kept out of evidence because they were obtained through a search without a warrant or consent.

State police arrested 32-year-old Ryan Ruff, of West Barnstable, on Dec. 13 on charges that he was driving under the influence of alcohol while unlicensed. During booking at the Bourne barracks, a trooper who was using Ruff’s iPhone to give his wife directions to come bail him out pressed several buttons, which revealed an image dated Oct. 21 of a girl between the ages of 7 and 10 performing oral sex on a man, according to an affidavit in support of an arrest warrant.

Ruff denied knowing anything about the photograph and was released on bail, but he was arrested again several days later at Joint Base Cape Cod on a charge of possession of child pornography.

Ruff’s attorney, Drew Segadelli, filed a motion to suppress that photo, as well as about 100 other images of child pornography or child erotica that were later found on the phone, arguing that his client never consented to the “search” and therefore all the photos were illegally obtained.

If you find over 100 photos of 7 year old girls “performing sex acts” on old men on a guys phone, you just can’t let the dude go on some illegal search technicality. I don’t care if you hired Edward Snowden to hack into that phone with a battle axe. The old “I don’t know how that got there” excuse may work for one photo, but 100? I don’t even have 100 pics of my dog on my phone and he’s cute as shit.

Bottom line here is if this dude gets off (pun intended) on a technicality then he at least needs to be kicked out of the Coast Guard for conduct unbecoming, because you simply can’t unbecome your conduct any worse than kiddie porn on your phone. Not even your home computer, but your phone. That means you’re such a sicko that you can’t even wait to get home, you need to get your pedophile on during down time while everyone else is playing Angry Birds and looking at pics of what someone they barely know had for dinner.

P.S. How does Drew Segadelli sleep at night, the dude defends murderers, cop shooters and child pornographers. I get that everyone has the right to a defense, but holy shit dude how about throwing in a Jaywalker every once in a while?
