Advanced, Innovative, and Unconventional Massachusetts State Search Warrants

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Massachusetts Search warrant practice goes beyond the commonplace warrants to search cars and houses for physical evidence. Advances in technology have altered practice and opened new investigative techniques for prosecutors; cell phones, computers, GPS devices, and Internet sites all contain or possess potentially useful evidence to build criminal cases. Moreover, creative practitioners can use search warrants to obtain evidence in other ways: for trace evidence, of safe deposit boxes, of businesses, and through other innovative techniques. This presentation will outline various advanced search warrants, give practice pointers, and discuss ways for defense attorneys to challenge the sufficiency of the warrants.
