Further to our conversation this morning, both myself and the team that I supervise found Matt Lashley’s presentation of your digital services extremely informative. In terms of the scope of investigations for electronic evidence, it has opened our eyes to the potential deficiencies of the Crown’s case. Especially in such situations were either a defendant directly challenges assertions made by the Crown, or alternatively where the Crown draw conclusions on the involvement of a defendant in an offence via tracking / cell site / DDR evidence. Mr. Lashley’s overview of the pitfalls of router evidence and spoof texting was also enlightening. Following on from the seminar my team are revisiting their current cases to review prosecution evidence and we have already potentially identified at least one case involving cell site / movements and assertions made by the Crown from such evidence about an individual’s involvement where Mr. Lashley may be able to help. Once again, many thanks to you and Matt for the presentation.
