Q: I had quite a shock when I entered my tenant’s apartment, at his request, to fix the leaking kitchen sink. Usually I encounter damage or a mess, but this was way worse: On the kitchen table were photos of naked children in suggestive poses and situations. It looks like pornography to me, but I’m the first to say, I’m no lawyer. Should I report this? What if I report it and I’m wrong — can I be sued? –Andrew F.
