There is a research explaining how poor knowledge and practices handling digital evidence and performing computer forensics makes you be able to easily send an innocent person to prison or at least, make that person have an unexpected situation, not nice at all, for some hours or days with the police and justice system from certain Country.
Those from the Justice system in that country, supposed to be experts in the field of computer-related crimes, are handling these kind of cases in a way where based only on a few elements, that do not reflect the whole picture of the situation, arrive to conclusions, the Judge assumes exactly represent what happened, but are only based on a few basic elements of the incident.
It is explained in a way, where the process is explained and it can be replicated to as initially mentioned, to make in a very easy way, somebody innocent end up, in the best scenario, spending a couple of days with the justice system, a situation that is not nice at all, and suffer other collateral damage such as loosing everything from that persons cellular phones, computers, and basically, his life and maybe his tools to work.
From my point of view this is extremely serious. My opinion is that in this scenario, to correct and solve these problems, it has to be done from a legislation level.
Legal implication of this research are being performed by the lawyer of the person that performed the research. It won’t be released until knowing that.
