Can text messages, emails, and Facebook posts be used to prove threatening conduct against you in a Pennsylvania court?
In short, yes. What you post online or what you send via electronic communication, for example, text message or an email can be used against you. It's similar in some respects to what you say. Just as what a person says can be used against them in a court of law, the same can also be true of an electronic communication.
Granted, it would need to be proven that you were the person that sent the text message or email or say the Facebook posts or other social media posts but if it can be proven or if it can be authenticated, that it was in fact you, yes it can be used against you. If you've already made the mistake of posting something threatening in nature, you need to take the necessary precautions and you have to be extremely mindful as to the potential implications. Having an experienced Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorney will be your best ally to help you understand and navigate the process and they should be involved with your facing and concern of this nature.
