What if the investigation had revealed that somebody else used his computer, or a hacker used a trojan to access the site through his computer, or somebody had been on his wireless network, or somebody had sent him the link and said it was something else? Do you think he would have gotten his life back after that?
Anyone can connect to your wireless connection and steal the services that you are paying for.
Anyone can connect to your wireless connection and conduct illegal downloads of copyrighted materials. RIAA will come after you, the registered user of the connection.
Anyone can "sniff" your unsecured wireless connection and steal your personal information without your knowledge.
Anyone can connect to your wireless connection, engage in illegal activities, and law enforcement officers will trace the illegal activity to you, the registered legitimate user of the connection.

2. The suspects network might be in use by a neighbor
3. The link might be SENT TO THEM by somebody else
4. They might be redirected to the link by another page
