I saw the same show, it's called "Snap Decision", and it's also based on a true story:

Her Chicago friend Carrie Dixon (Felicity Huffman) takes photographs of the children as they innocently play. However, the photo lab that develops Carrie's pictures sends the contact sheet and negatives to the police, fearing child abuse and child pornography.
The teleplay by Ara Watson and Sam Blackwell, based on a story inspired by real events by Randy Sue Coburn, presents a tale of injustice since we are witness to the behavior that created the photographs, including how some of them were actually taken by Lauren.
Jeff Pierson is a photographer whose action shots of hopped-up American autos laying waste to the asphalt at Alabama dragways have appeared in racing magazines and commercial advertisements.
Pierson's Web site boasted he has the "most wonderful wife in the world and two fantastic daughters." And until recently, he ran a business called Beautiful Super Models that charged $175 for portraits of aspiring models under 18.
In a federal indictment announced this week, the U.S. Department of Justice accused Pierson, 43, of being a child pornographer--even though even prosecutors acknowledge there's no evidence he has ever taken a single photograph of an unclothed minor.
This is a far cry from what folks normally think of as child pornography."
the photographs in question depicted girls wearing everything from sweaters to, more frequently, swimsuits and midriff-baring attire. Parents appear to have given their consent.

Shortly before Thanksgiving 2004, I took my three kids camping in Mistletoe State Park near Augusta, Ga., with my best friend and his two kids. After six years in Savannah, my family was about to move to France for my wife's new job

I think the biggest point to be made here is that you are now guilty until proven innocent in this county (US). Every protection the citizen had from the government has been removed thanks to the Patriot Act. This can happen to anyone on here or anywhere at any time.
The Bible said: "When they say peace and safety, RUN!" and they were not kidding! Everything including lies will now be used against you in court. Simple as that.
I've had to tell people not to take those pics of their kids for this exact reason. A friend who is a teacher (pre-school) told me that they are told to report these things, regardless of how innocent it seems.
Was fear of terrorists really worth this?
