    Re: Information retrieved off your computer for a court case

    Law enforcement uses information obtained from peoples computers for prosecution all the time.
    Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

    I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

    Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

        Without knowing all the particulars, there really is no way to say the evidence is relevant, can be considered accurate, was obtained legally or will have proper foundation to be used.

            As long as the information is obtained from there and documented by a computer professional as not having been doctored and proper foundation is laid for its admission, it likely can be. If you are being accused of a crime like this, you really should have a lawyer do this for you.

              The evidence rules of your state, if state court, or the Federal Rules of Evidence if in federal court will determine what information may be used, how it was obtained and if you can use it in court.

              If you own the laptop, the data on it is yours. You own the data. How you present it in court, however, is determined by the rules of evidence.
