1:15 - 2:15 Prosecuting With Help From The Stored Communications Act: What Are The Kids Up To???
Juvenile offenders use mobile phones, laptop computers, and network servers in the course of everyday life, and fortunately, while committing their crimes. In some cases, computers provide the means of committing crime. In other cases, computers merely serve as convenient storage devices for evidence of crime. Indeed, virtually every class of crime can involve some form of digital evidence. The dramatic increase in computer-related crime requires prosecutors and law enforcement agents to understand how to obtain electronic evidence stored in computers. Electronic records such as computer network logs, email, word processing files, and image files increasingly provide the government with important (and sometimes essential) evidence in criminal cases. This presentation will provide prosecutors with systematic guidance that can help them understand the legal issues that arise when they seek electronic evidence in criminal investigations. The Stored Communications Act, 18 U.S.C.§§ 2701-2712, governs how investigators and prosecutors can obtain stored account records and contents from network service providers, including Internet service providers (“ISPs”), telephone companies, and cell phone service providers. Brian M. McDonough, Assistant United States Attorney
Northern District of Ohio
