Admitting crimes in a poly

During my poly prequestioning yesterday I admitted to seeing underage porn when I was 18, it was downloaded on a fileshare app then erased. This was 11 years ago. The images were just labeled underage, and not of young girls... I don't even have a clue if they were real or not.

Do I have any concerns about being prosecuted for this? In my blatant attempt to be honest, I admitted to something I had pretty much forgot. My nerves are pretty much killing me right now.

Job applicants who have made similar admissions have been criminally prosecuted and convicted in the past. However, as I recall from the news articles I've read about such cases, the admitted behavior was much more recent and was followed up with a search warrant, and direct incriminating evidence was found. I don't recall any case where an applicant was prosecuted based on an uncorroborated admission.

Jumper82,

I think those who seek positions of public trust have an ethical obligation to answer relevant questions truthfully.

George,
You're right.  I need to either withdraw from the process or admit all and let the chips fall where they may.  Thanks.  Can you delete my previous post?

To George,

I have a similar problem. I posted the topic "Accidentally Viewing Underage Porn and Polygraph Questions" https://antipolygraph.org/cgi-bin/forums/YaBB.pl?num=1363994277 a few months back and was hoping for a response from you. I feel I might have accidentally viewed underage porn when I saw it posted on 4chan. I wasn't sure but I still reported it to the moderators. If I get a question like,  "Have you ever seen something on the internet that made you uncomfortable?" or a question that asks about child porn, should I admit this?

StillWorried,

Whether to divulge this is a personal decision that only you can make. However, I would note that any such admission may open the door to a highly intrusive sexual inquisition and is precisely the sort of thing that may be spun into a disqualifying admission by an ambitious polygraph operator seeking to boost his or her confession rate.
