For A.J. and Lisa Demaree, the photos they snapped of their young daughters were innocent and sweet.

But after a photo developer at Wal-Mart thought otherwise, the Demarees found themselves in a yearlong battle to prove they were not child pornographers.

“I don’t’ understand it at all,” A.J. Demaree told “Good Morning America” Monday. “Ninety-nine percent of the families in America have these exact same photos.”

The eight photos in question were among a batch of 144 family photos the Demarees had taken to their local Wal-Mart. The developer alerted the police and the investigation into child pornography began in earnest, even though the parents maintained they were innocent bath time photos.

The Peoria, Ariz., couple had their home searched by police and worse, their children -- then ages 18 months, 4 and 5 -- were taken from them for more than month. Their names were placed on a sex offender registry for a time, and Lisa Demaree was suspended from her school job for a year. The couple said they have spent $75,000 on legal bills.

A report issued by local authorities described the photos as "child erotica" and "sex exploitation," the couple's lawyer Dick Treon told "Good Morning America." He said the person responsible for the report was unqualified to make such judgments.

The Demarees are now sharing a few of the photos with the public, he said, so the "truth to catch up with the lie."

"These photos were never intended for anyone to see except for family members," Treon said. "Perversion is in the eye of the viewer."

Eventually, a judge threw out charges against the Demarees, but now they're going on the legal offensive by suing the state, the city and Wal-Mart for their role in what they call a "nightmare."

"I think that we need to have an awareness of how our innocent photographs can be misconstrued and misperceived," Lisa Demaree said.

99% sure there is nothing to this, however, once again, the media fails to ask the most obvious question of the parents. What was the content of the 4 pictures they didnt release. i understand what the attorney said, showing them would make him liable to the same charges. ok, then, can you describe them then? something is very fishy here that the local authorities are standing behind the findings. if it was nothing wouldnt somebody said "For C------sake, what is this? drop this now"

Nothing to this? It's been on the news and the Mom lost her job due to it. She worked at a school. Eventually a judge through the case out but can you imagine the stress and cost for a year. Now they're suing WalMart and the govt for defamation and I hope they win.

I meant nothing to this as in, there was nothing wrong in the photos. But I'm also saying I don't think were getting the whole story here. Something is up with the other 4 photos and Robin Roberts failed to ask the most obvious question.

Yes, because if the 4 pictures were really "bad," the judge would still have just tossed the case. Mmm hmm.

My mom took bath time pictures of me. Should we dig up her old bones and charge her?
