Appraising Legal Issues related to Cybercrime Investigations
The syllabus for the Georgia v. Randolph (2006) case contains a summary of the case and the primary legal issues that were discussed in the case. The syllabus can be found at http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/05pdf/04-1067.pdfBe sure you have read the entire syllabus paying particular attention to the “consent” legal issues at hand. Using the syllabus, your text, the Internet, and other academic sources, explain how the Randolph ruling might apply to cases involving computers and/or other devices that contain digital evidence. In the absence of consent, what other exceptions to the search warrant might apply to computers or other high-tech evidence and to what extent? In a 3–5 page paper, articulate your answer and provide at least two practical examples.
