More than 7.5 million people in the United States are affected by stalking every year, with some studies indicating that one in four victims report use of technology by the offender. The use of personal computers, mobile devices, and other technology in stalking activity presents challenges for the prosecutor who must connect the activity to the defendant. Prosecutors must be familiar with the sources of available evidence, how to obtain it from technology providers, and how to present it effectively to a jury.
This presentation covers the applicable rules of evidence and relevant case law associated with proving a technology-facilitated stalking case and will provide strategies on when and how to introduce technical evidence and overcome common objections at trial.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Identify and preserve technical evidence.
- Identify and overcome evidentiary challenges to admitting technical evidence at trial.
- Explain the importance of collaboration and coordination with allied professionals to obtain technical evidence.
