Anyone can be charged with a crime he did not commit and face criminal prosecution. Though the US Constitution does have provisions deeming an accused not guilty until his “crime” is proven beyond reasonable doubt it does not always work that way. An accused has the right to a speedy trial according to Amendment VI and Amendment V safeguards him against self-incrimination. An accused may remain silent during questioning. Amendment IV prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures. All these protections notwithstanding an accused may be convicted purely on the basis of circumstantial evidence, especially in cases where digital evidence is involved. Prosecution may not be able to unravel digital evidence or may simply ignore it. It is for the defendant to hire a competent attorney well versed in getting to the root of the matter and even being able to unravel digital data and present it in a form that stands up as compelling evidence disproving the accusations and circumstantial evidence against the defendant.
Technology is here since quite some time. However, attorneys are more focused on various aspects of the law and may be quite unfamiliar with handling digital data, especially in instances of cyber crimes such as Ponzi schemes, bank frauds and white collar crimes. This is where services of an expert in computer and digital forensics prove to be invaluable.
Litigation, whether civil or criminal, is a drawn out and expensive affair. If, at the end, a wrongly charged defendant loses, he stands to spend time in prison, pay a hefty fine or both. In addition, his reputation is besmirched and he loses his social standing as well as his job. If convicted, once returned to society he cannot regain his previous status. He is marked forever. This may never have happen if he had the benefit of expert investigative assistance. Employing experts in examining witnesses, compiling testimony, unraveling digital data and even appearing on the witness stands can turn the tables in favor of the defendant.
