Trial hears evidence from phone expert

Expert retrieves text messages and contact details in XRY analysis

The Special Criminal Court in Dublin heard video-link evidence from a mobile phone forensics expert based in New Zealand, for the trial of a man accused of possessing €1 million worth of heroin.

The expert explained that he was trained in level one mobile phone forensics and was a member of the Garda Organised Crime Unit in May 2008 but had since retired and moved to New Zealand.

He said that he examined a black and silver Nokia 6300 mobile phone, a Samsung mobile phone and two pre-pay SIM cards from the Meteor and Vodafone networks that were handed to him by investigating gardai.

Mr Gannon told Mr O’Kelly that, using computer software, he was able to retrieve text messages and contact details stored in the Nokia 6300 phone and one text message from the Vodafone SIM card in what is known as an XRY analysis.

USA debate on cellphone searches

US Courts Divided Over Searches of Cellphones

Judges and lawmakers across the USA are wrangling over whether and when law enforcement authorities can peer into suspects’ cellphones, and the cornucopia of evidence they provide.

  • A Rhode Island judge recently threw out cellphone evidence that led to a man being charged with the murder of a 6-year-old boy, saying the police needed a search warrant.
  • A court in Washington compared text messages to voice mail messages that can be overheard by anyone in a room and are therefore not protected by state privacy laws.
  • In Louisiana, a federal appeals court is weighing whether location records stored in smartphones deserve privacy protection, or whether they are “business records” that belong to the phone companies.

“The courts are all over the place,” said Hanni Fakhoury, a criminal lawyer with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based civil liberties group.

“They can’t even agree if there’s a reasonable expectation of privacy in text messages that would trigger Fourth Amendment protection.”

The issue will attract attention on Thursday when a Senate committee considers limited changes to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, a 1986 law that regulates how the government can monitor digital communications. Courts have used it to permit warrantless surveillance of certain kinds of cellphone data.

As technology races ahead of the law, courts and lawmakers are still trying to figure out how to think about the often intimate data that cellphones contain, said Peter P. Swire, a law professor at Ohio State University. Neither the 1986 statute nor the Constitution, he said, could have anticipated how much information cellphones may contain, including detailed records of people’s travels and diagrams of their friends.

“It didn’t take into account what the modern cellphone has — your location, the content of communications that are easily readable, including Facebook posts, chats, texts and all that stuff,” Mr. Swire said.
