ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I don’t think it’s possible to delete emails.
Shouldn’t deleting your email be protected under the 5th amendment?
You know that electronic communications don’t count since they didn’t exist when that was written.
Ah, just like assault rifles didn’t exist when they wrote the 2nd amendment. I get it!
He just needs to say it was due to a computer virus. Presto change-o, instantly legal!
deleting emails is a crime now, I’m confused.
It’s a terrible summary by boingboing. He’s `accused’ of it in the informal sense, i.e. the prosecution and police are making a stink about it in the media to explain their complete lack of evidence and/or to slander the defendant. They are not claiming it is a crime. The actual charge is “promoting prostitution.”
Wait, having sex with a woman who happens to be your expensive Zumba instructor is illegal now?
So we found a criminal smart enough to delete incriminating emails… Has he considered running for office?
Coincidentally, The defendants hard drive was the piece of evidence that may have been mis-handled: http://www.pressherald.com/news/Defense-attorneys-seek-dismissal-of-all-charges-in-Zumba-case.html
I wonder who has the movie rights for this case – it has everything…
