Be Aware of Evidence on Social Media Involving Anticipated or Pending Investigations or Litigation

By Eric Marcy |   Dec. 27, 2016

            Under the recent case of State v. Hannah, Docket No. A-5741-14T3, (N.J. App. Div. Decided December 20, 2016; approved for publication), the courts have confirmed how Twitter postings may be authenticated.   Social media postings may now be authenticated as any other “writing” under New Jersey Rule of Evidence 901.  Despite the ease in which digital media may be manipulated, the court rejected an argument for a higher standard for authentication.  The court confirmed that a combination of circumstantial factors related to the posting, such as context, prior communications, expressing specific knowledge of an event/issue, profile information, and photographs may establish sufficient authentication.  Social media has become a rich source of information for litigation and authentication is possible through direct proof, circumstantial evidence, contents/knowledge, reply and other miscellaneous methods of establishing reliability as any other form of writing.

Getting Off of Megan’s Law Registration When the Conviction Occurred in New Jersey and the Registrant Lives in Another State – Catch-22 – They Don’t Make it Easy

By Eric Marcy |   May. 26, 2016

            There is a new twist in applying for release from the burdensome requirements of Megan’s Law registration and Parole/Community Supervision for Life.  When the original Megan’s Law Order is entered in New Jersey and the person has subsequently moved to another State, some County Prosecutors may object to an application to vacate the registration/notification Order, asserting a lack of jurisdiction.   States have their own variations of offenses that require registration and the type of notification issues that result.  This has been viewed by some prosecutor's as depriving New Jersey of the jurisdictional authority to vacate its own original registration/notification Order.  That a registrant resides in another State should not deny that person the ability to return to New Jersey and seek a modification of the original New Jersey Order.
