In that case, the FBI wouldn't have sufficient evidence to convict you. There's nothing to worry about.
I allude to the asking for such emails to be sent by the FBI because they are not going to just send them for no reason. And if I got an email from the FBI without expecting one I would be highly suspicious of it being a fraudulent email and delete it.

Let's see how long it takes for someone (anon) to find these links, then copy them but instead use a text like 'funny dog video'. That'll keep fbi busy for awhile.
At that point you mention your friend was over and he gets questioned also. Proper questioning will make finding which of the two of you is guilty much easier.
Innocence can be easier to prove as long as there are not multiple hits on your PC of child porn.
I am not going to argue about the person you know but that seems as if there might have been more on the PC than is being let on...Question is though why went he got to the site did he click on “a few pics”?
Most people would not click on any pics if they came to such a site. Simply by clicking on the images he placed himself in a bad situation.
Had he went to the site and closed it out without clicking on the images he would have been better off, less chance of them showing intent in his case.
Now had he found the sites and reported them to the police at that time and explained the situation things would not have come to that more than likely.
They do after all have to prove that you intended to view child porn, actively perused child porn by searching for it, and either succeeded in the crime of failed.

Your hard drive will be able to show where you got the links and how they were labeled.
If you borrowed my car and a cart hit it leaving a scratch or dent and you didn’t tell me I would be expectedly mad and I would be asking you to pay for the damage. To not tell someone what you are planning to do or have done with their property is nothing more than rude.

Again I think heavily about the safety of myself and also my computer.
When they drag me out and fail to prove that I am criminal and they have caused some form of harm in my life they will face a lawsuit and I am sure it would be easy to find civil rights groups to back that lawsuit if their evidence was not valid.
