Explain how digital evidence must be handled to preserve the integrity of the physical device as well as the data it contains.

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, watch the Heists: Cybercrimes with Ben Hammersley video below.
There are many obstacles for a criminal justice professional or a private citizen or corporation to
collect evidence at an electronic crime scene. Last week we examined how traditional notions of crime scene preservation may transfer into the world of cyber crime investigations. This discussion requires you to explain the details and the potential issues with gaining admissible, crime scene evidence for a virtual crime. The five elements provide the minimal requirements for crime scene preservation and data collection. Provide as much detail as possible in your initial post.
Your 400 word minimum initial post for this discussion will detail the following:
Explain how digital evidence must be handled to preserve the integrity of the physical device as well as the data it contains.
Examine how some digital evidence requires special collection, packaging, and transportation techniques.

What are the special considerations for various forms of data?

List the ways that data can be damaged.
Explain how investigators avoid damaging data.
Analyze how communication devices like computers, mobile phones, smart phones, and tablets should be secured and prevented from receiving or transmitting data once they are identified and collected as evidence.

What did the prosecutor use to prove the mental intent of the offender at the time of the crime?

1)There are many cases in which an individual has been convicted on circumstantial evidence for the crime of murder. Find a recent and local case in your home state in which a person has been found guilty of murder or a varied degree of homicide.  Summarize the case in your main post. Indicate the reasons for the conviction. Was it based on physical or circumstantial evidence? What did the prosecutor use to prove the mental intent of the offender at the time of the crime?
2) Did the prosecution and/or the defense use legal technology in some way to aid in the development and/or presentation of their respective sides of the case?  Was that use (if any) actually helpful in that case (or potentially, other similar cases)?  If it was not helpful, explain why you think so.
3) How did conducting research and going through each step of legal analysis help you to reach this conclusion?  Analyze how you applied critical thinking and legal analytical skills to assist you in this regard.  What new research and/or analytical tool or method did you try for the first time this week?  What do you think you do well and what would you like to strengthen so that you continue to improve?

What defense, if any, will Jack likely use?  Will he be successful?

Michael got drunk to work up the courage to shoot his ex-wife.  He shoots her but does not kill her.  What defense, if any, does Michael have to a charge of assault with intent to kill?  Will he be successful? Explain why. Support your response with legal reason. Your response should be a minimum of 500 words.
Question 2
Jack, who is 9 years old, took his father’s loaded gun and killed his 4-year-old sister.  What defense, if any, will Jack likely use?  Will he be successful?
Question 3
Stacey has had it with her husband’s cheating, but leaving him will put her in a financial bind. She wants to take advantage of his $1 million life insurance policy, so she offers a man $100,000 to kill her husband, making it look like a fishing accident. What crimes if any has Stacey committed. What defenses if any may she assert? Explain why. Support your response with legal reason. Your response should be a minimum of 500 words.
Question 4
You’re the manager of a small retail store. A customer comes in and asks to return an item he purchased over a year ago, even though there are posted signs that clearly indicate “No returns or exchanges after 30 days.” The customer becomes irate, and you try your best to appease him, even by offering a discount on a new item, which you normally wouldn’t do.
Finally, after you explain that you don’t have the authority to break the 30-day rule and he’ll have to come back when the owner is available, he storms out of the store in a huff.
About 45 minutes later, you leave the store for your lunch break. As you’re heading toward the parking lot, you suddenly hear an engine rev behind you. The irate customer is in his car and drives — fast — toward you and hits you. Fortunately, you were able to jump out of the way to an extent, but he still knocks you down and you suffer broken bones, bruises, and lacerations.
What are the elements of a crime? What crimes have been committed by the customer in this scenario? What defenses may be asserted by the customer? Discuss whether or not the manager may bring a civil suit against the customer in addition to the criminal charges being filed by law enforcement. Your response should be supported with legal reason and should be a minimum of 500 words.
