Criminal cases become more and more complex with the introduction of digital evidence.
Computer and mobile phone forensics are now used extensively by the police in order to provide evidence and prosecute a suspect.
Dealing with digital evidence can be a lengthy process. Police backlogs are getting longer and longer; this means that it may take up to a year for the police forensic labs to investigate a computer or a mobile phone. Strathclyde Forensics will endeavor to get a forensic copy of the drive (with the exception of the cases of indecent images of children in Scotland) and investigate it on your behalf.
When the police forensic report is handed to you, we will audit it and find mistakes that may be used to the benefit of your client.
Sometimes there may be evidence that is not in the hands of the police, that may exonerate your client. This can be records of mobile phones, satellite navigators, computers and other electronic devices.
Our work can provide you early information for your litigation, prepare you for what a police report will find and give you more time to prepare your defense. It may also allow us to discredit the police reports, if and when omissions and errors are found. (and in our experience, there will always be something to find). Last but not least, we can provide you with unique CPD training that will enhance your skill set.

Criminal cases are becoming more complicated because of technological advancements. If you, as a lawyer have not checked for the existence of electronic evidence, then you may not have done your due diligence for the case you are handling.
