#GUILTY: Identifying, Preserving, and Presenting Digital Evidence
Presented by Jane Anderson, AEquitas Attorney Advisor
The way we interact with technology continues to increase and evolve as we rely on computers, smart phones, and other digital devices to complete many of our daily activities. Unfortunately, as technology becomes more integral to our lives, offenders increasingly misuse technology to facilitate crimes against women, and as a means to assert power and control in the course of an intimate partner relationship. Where technology is being used to perpetrate crimes, investigators and prosecutors can identify, preserve, and present digital evidence in order strengthen cases, support victims, and hold offenders accountable for the full range of their criminal and abusive activity.
This recording demonstrates how cyber investigations can be used to reveal evidence of criminal activity, as well as evidence of the power and control dynamics of an abusive intimate partner relationship. The presenter discusses theories of admission, rules of evidence, and case law will be discussed using “real life” examples to demonstrate how to properly authenticate and introduce digital evidence in civil and criminal proceedings.
Allied justice system professionals including but not limited to prosecutors, law enforcement officers, community-based service providers, probation and parole officers, judges, etc. are encouraged to view the webinar recording.
