Music hi this is Mike Haber thanks for asking me what is electronic evidence evidence comes in many forms and can be categorised with many different names you've heard of direct circumstantial physical testimonial scientific well when we use the term electronic evidence what we're referring to are things that can be stored or transmitted in a digital form and later introduced in trial common used forms of electronic evidence include things like email social media accounts histories post comments digital photographs surveillance footage ATM transaction logs any file or document on a computer be it a word processing file or a spreadsheet internet browser histories computer smartphone or tablet memory content or backups printouts GPS tracks logs app histories digital or video audio files black box information from cars or planes even hotels electronic door locking system logs all of these things and basically anything that's either digital or electronic is potential electronic evidence like any other form of evidence in order for electronic evidence to be admitted into a criminal case one it's got to be lawfully obtained meaning not illegally acquired - it's got to be subject to authentication meaning whoever's trying to admit it has to lay the proper predicate and three it's got to be relevant meaning it's got to tend to prove or disprove a material fact in the case the bottom line with electronic evidence is every time you use a computer smartphone tablet or other electronic device and every time you post or appear or tagged in social media and every time you pass through a tollbooth or under a traffic camera or in any of an uncountable number of other ways electronic evidence that could potentially be admitted into evidence against you is being generated thank you for your question I appreciate your having asked it and I invite you to ask me more please remember at Haber PA it's all about reasonable doubt and if you like this video please subscribe we'll be putting out more soon Music Applause
