Can social media or internet information be used to prove a case against me in court?Return to Video FAQs
Of course. Absolutely. Anything that you put out there on the social media or out on the internet, is discoverable by anybody, including law enforcement and prosecutors. It is important that you always are mindful of and careful of what you put on social media whether it be Facebook, or Instagram, or Twitter. Anything that you put out there is for public consumption. You don’t have protections from the Constitution of the United States or the Constitution of Pennsylvania from their seizure, and so the answer is yes, and I’d be very careful about what I put out there.
