Default Destruction of devices containing child pornography

Greetings! I know of someone who has viewed child porn when he was young and deeply regretted it and didn't want to do it again. After he stopped, does he still need to surrender and forfeit his device after using it to view online child porn? Can he still keep the device?

Default Re: Destruction of devices containing child pornography

I wish to inform you that if a person has violated any provisions of Section 4 of Republican Act 9775 then a person may be held liable for its violation. As computer was one of the instrument used in crime thus its destruction may violate law. If any person complains to police then police may investigate crime after which person may be summoned by police and then person is required to present himself to police. Alternatively if person desires then he may himself report to law enforcement about his acts and they may then investigate the incident.

Therefore is it necessary to submit the computer for destruction?

Therefore is it necessary to submit the computer for destruction if he is found guilty?

If only he knows of the matter he need not do anything.
He has not been found guilty in a court,
