PLEASE KEEP COMPLETELY SEPARATE FROM 1 AND THIS IS A RESPONSE TO THE POST BELOW 50 to 75 words
One evidentiary issue that could be presented regarding the admission of digital evidence at trial is if the evidence is clear and convincing. For example, When looking channel 7; when someone is maybe breaking into someone’s house or breaking into a store. I have seen video feed thats just a shadow, or maybe the person has on something that hides their face. They willstill ask if you reconize that person. Unfortunately, it’s hard to figure out who the suspect is because the image maybe bad or they may becovered. There is no way to solve this issue unless they have some kind of tattoo or scar that could be pointed out.
Two types of warrentless searches are: Plain-view search and Exigent circumstances. Plain-view search, a warrent isn’t required for this because; if your investigating someone and you see criminal activity on their computersc, no matter what it is; you can use that informaton because as long it can be seen by the general public. Exigent circumstances, a warrent isn’t required for this because; it may an immediate emergency. For example, a murder, kidnap, robbery or anyother type of crime.
