Local judge taking part in webcast that will explore 'Information in Criminal Matters'

The Practising Law Institute (PLI) will present "Electronic Information in Criminal Matters: Strategies and Challenges" as a live webcast on Monday, August 16, beginning at 1 p.m.

Electronic information is now a feature in the investigation, prosecution, and defense of crimes. Electronic information raises issues about preservation and spoliation of that information as well discovery-related obligations and "cooperation" between the prosecution and the defense. Admissibility of electronic information can also present challenges for the prosecution and defense. This presentation will address these issues and will suggest strategies that might be useful to both prosecutors and defense counsel.

The webcast's expert faculty will discuss:

  • Preservation and spoliation of electronic information

  • Cooperation between prosecutors and defense counsel

  • Admissibility of electronic information

  • Conditions of probation and electronic monitoring

  • Effective assistance of counsel with regard to electronic information

Speaking at the program will be Kent County Circuit Court Judge Christopher P. Yates; Superior Court of New Jersey Judge Sohail Mohammed, Criminal Division; U.S. District Court Judge Cathy L. Waldor, District of New Jersey; and Ronald J. Hedges of Dentons US LLP.

Course materials will be available to attendees prior to the start of the program. Cost for the webcast is $299. To register or for additional information, visit www.pli.edu and click on "programs."
