If you are about to go through a divorce, it is important remember that your soon-to-be ex-spouse's attorney will be looking for evidence to help his or her client; that includes looking on social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn for evidence of your lifestyle or for comments or photographs that contradict statements you are making during the process.
In criminal trials, prosecutors are required to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. To do this, they generally seek to introduce evidence from the alleged crime scene. However, a trial may occur years after the evidence is taken from the crime scene. Law enforcement officers and technicians are tasked with maintaining the integrity of the evidence in the interim.
