Laws of Evidence Assignment Help

Your first task is to post your own Key Assignment Outline (outline of your response to the Phase 4 IP) to the discussion area so that other students are able to review your plan. Attach your document to the main discussion post
Unit 4 – Individual Project
During trial preparation, you are directed by the Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) to bring the tapes of intercepted conversations involving a prime suspect in your case to her office. You provide the evidence custodian with the necessary paperwork and are waiting for the tapes to be produced. After 20 minutes, the custodian comes back and asks if you are sure you have provided the correct case and exhibit numbers. You verify the numbers and are told the original tapes cannot be found.
You immediately inform your supervisor, who is understandably concerned. You have the paperwork documenting the fact that the tapes were transferred to the custody of the evidence custodian. The other agents in the office are asked whether they have any knowledge of this matter. No one has any idea as to what happened to the original tapes.
You and your supervisor call the AUSA and explain to her what has happened. She is furious and tells you not to be surprised if the judge throws out the entire case. You remind her that she has duplicate copies in her possession and that you have your working copies as well. She says her copies were barely audible, and apparently there was some problem with the recording equipment. You decide to do some research on the best evidence rule.

Instructor Tips: Unit 4
Unit 4 Discussion Board Assignment
Chain of Custody for Wiretaps.
Title III Wiretap statutes 18 U.S.C. 2516-2518- focus on chain of custody. The purpose of judicial sealing 18 U.S.C. 2518(8)(a) is to insure the integrity of the electronic surveillance recordings, considering their potential for modification and the technical difficulty in detecting such changes. Judicial sealing prevents tampering, alterations or editing; aids in establishing the chain of custody; and protects the confidentiality of the recordings.
