A new guide to the legal issues presented by the collection of digital evidence in criminal cases, this book addresses how such evidence may be obtained and the rules that govern its use in court. Although written mainly for North Carolina judges, lawyers, and officers, it may also be of use to officials in other states.

Chapters cover the following topics:

  • search warrants for digital devices,
  • warrantless searches of digital devices,
  • law enforcement access to and interception of electronic communications,
  • GPS tracking, and
  • the law of evidence and the introduction of digital evidence in criminal trials.

Appendices reproduce several frequently referenced statutes.
