Leveraging Physical Analyzer to Prepare Defense Discovery Reports in Child Exploitation Cases
Your webinar is now available.
Wednesday, April 29
Pursuant to the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, United States law enforcement and prosecutors are prohibited from providing visual depictions of suspected child exploitation exhibits to defense attorneys and defense attorney experts. Producing reports that exclude the prohibited material but include non-prohibited material can be challenging for investigators, examiners, and prosecutors. For example, the defense may not be entitled to possess the image or video physically; however, the state would be required to provide the file name and file attributes related to the file to the defense. Generally, most forensic software, including Physical Analyzer, can create reports that are intended to report all relevant “evidence” or information as set forth during the report generation. This would include thumbnail images and links that would display the entire image or video. Physical Analyzer has built-in functions to assist examiners in generating reports that omit these thumbnail images, links, and files; however, examiners should be diligent in ensuring these are not included in the report.
During this webinar, we will demonstrate how can you utilize best practices and built-in functions to create discovery reports more efficiently. Attendees can expect to learn:
- How to exclude prohibited content from reports through the Manage Tags icon within Physical Analyzer
- How to quickly identify known files using the Project Vic integration
- Prepare a redacted imagery defense report
