Probation case a challenge for prosecutors, judges

The last time the world heard about Yongda Huang Harris was last fall, when the Dorchester man was stopped at Los Angeles International Airport by an agent who noticed he was wearing body armor.

On his computer, authorities found a depiction of rape, molestation, and sexual torture of children.
