Can social media or internet information be used to prove a case against me in a Pennsylvania court? VIDEO

Can social media or internet information be used to prove a case against you in a Pennsylvania court? It can. You have to bear in mind that what you post on social media, or otherwise on the internet, can be used against you. It's similar to your spoken word. Although, in this instance, it's memorialized in a sense of being on social media in a social media post, or otherwise on the internet.

Granted, it would need to potentially be proven that you were the person who posted what was stated, or what was posted otherwise. For example, in the case of a video. In short, yes, it can be used to prove a case against you. You have to be extremely mindful as to what is posted and if you've already done so, you have to take precautions to best address the situation.

Having an experienced Pennsylvania criminal defense attorney will help you understand where you stand, and will help you understand and navigate the process if there's a concern involving something of this nature.
