Criminal Defense Social Media and criminal cases

One thing that has become apparent in criminal defense is that social media and the internet can affect the outcome of criminal cases. Sex Crimes In the past few years social media, like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, have played a huge role in the affects of many individuals criminal cases. Using these websites as a way to share information and memories with friends and family is one thing, but those posts can be used as evidence in a criminal investigation as well. Police can use your social media posts and pictures as evidence in obtaining a arrest or search warrant against you. Not only can police work behind the scenes, they can also work undercover with a fake social media account and get someone to expose that they have participated in criminal activity, which then leads to an arrest or charges being filed.

Be aware in Criminal Defense that social media postings and internet usage can be used against you in criminal cases. Social media can be used by law enforcement to discover new evidence, find suspects or witnesses, confirm alibis, find incriminating statements, or show what a suspect was doing prior to the crime being committed. The right to bail If the information on the social networking sites is discoverable, those who discover and want to use social networking information must still prove its relevance to the case. When investigators manage to receive an account holder's information, they're still obligated to verify whether the name on the account belongs to the actual suspect. They then must make sure the posts were authentic, not pranks, and posted by the suspect. You need a defense lawyer who knows how to combat social media evidence and ensure your rights are not violated. Contact the experienced lawyers at the Law Offices of Kelly and Conte to make an appointment for a free consultation.
