Cell phone location evidence is used frequently by law enforcement to show a suspect’s location at the time of a crime. This program will provide attorneys and investigators with background information on cellular technology, carrier stored data, how experts obtain records, and accuracy and validity of those records. The presentation, while technically based, is presented to offer an easy-to-understand introduction to the science of cell phone based location evidence. Both cell tower location evidence and other cell phone location-tracking evidence will be covered.
The program will also include a discussion of legal challenges to location evidence, including information about the timing of these challenges, offering testimony from an independent expert, and other considerations.
This program is part of the 2022 IDS Forensic Science Education Series. The webinars will be presented monthly and are free to attend. Attorneys who want CLE credit for attending will be billed $3.50 per credit hour by the State Bar. Use this link to register for all webinars in the series and attend any that are of interest.
