Florida Supreme Court bans warrantless collection of cell data On behalf of Ira Baker of The Baker Law Offices posted in Criminal Defense on Thursday, November 6, 2014. Our post last week focused on measures that Apple is taking to protect the privacy of its iPhone customers. This is in response to the constant demands from law enforcement and other government agencies seeking to obtain customer metadata, sometimes in bulk and often without a warrant. Privacy in the digital age is as much a criminal defense issue as it is a civil liberties one. Thankfully, the Florida Supreme Court recently delivered an important ruling limiting police powers to collect cellphone location data and other metadata without first obtaining a warrant. The case that went before the Court involved a Florida drug dealer who was convicted based on cellphone data collected without a warrant. The state Supreme Court held that when police use cellphone location data for purposes of tracking a suspect’s movements in “real time,” this amounts to a Fourth Amendment search. As such, the search is only legal if a warrant has been obtained.

Eyewitness ID and memory can be very inaccurate, studies show On behalf of Ira Baker of The Baker Law Offices posted in Criminal Defense on Friday, October 10, 2014. If you witnessed a crime and the suspect was someone you did not already know, do you think you could identify that person in a line-up or in a series of photos? How confident would you be when telling police that you recognized the suspect? Would you be willing to stake someone’s freedom on the accuracy of your memory? Many people assume that they have a great memory. But numerous studies have shown that when it comes to eyewitness identification, what and who eyewitnesses supposedly saw can be very inaccurate. This problem is one of the most significant criminal defense issues of our time. Continue reading Eyewitness ID and memory can be very inaccurate, studies show... Tags: Criminal Defense

Florida court delivers important ruling on red-light cameras On behalf of Ira Baker of The Baker Law Offices posted in Traffic Violations on Saturday, October 30, 2014. Red-light cameras have angered more than a few Florida drivers. These citations often seem unfair, in part, because local police departments play only a very small role in the process. The vast majority of the work is done by outside vendors who operate the cameras, review alleged offenses and handle basically all paperwork. Thankfully, the Florida Court of Appeals has taken umbrage with this practice of outsourcing police work. In a unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel, the Court of Appeals said that the manner in which red-light cameras are operated throughout Florida is unlawful.

Miami-Dade's sex offender restrictions challenged by ACLU On behalf of Ira Baker of The Baker Law Offices posted in Criminal Defense on Saturday, October 25, 2014. America’s criminal justice system is predicated on the idea that criminal offenders can be reformed and that once they serve their sentence, their debt to society is repaid. In practice, this usually doesn’t pan out – especially for individuals convicted of sex crimes. It is not that convicted offenders are incapable of change. Rather, laws placing restrictions on registered sex offenders have become so restrictive that they violate the due process rights of released offenders and actually threaten public safety rather than improve it.

Apple makes it harder for gov. to conduct warrantless data searches On behalf of Ira Baker of The Baker Law Offices posted in Criminal Defense on Wednesday, October 29, 2014. In the last two decades, communications technology has advanced at a dizzying pace. In the early 1990s, most Americans were still talking only on landlines. Since then, cellphones have become ubiquitous and most phones now include access to internet, email, text messaging, GPS tracking and other technologies that keep us “on the grid” even when we’re on the go. The pace at which technology advances has long been an important criminal defense issue. Laws that balance police and government powers against the civil and privacy rights of citizens often lag far behind that which is technologically possible. As we learned earlier this year, the NSA and other government agencies are collecting private electronic data on an unprecedented scale, usually without the knowledge or consent of individuals and courts.
