I just received these two pictures via email from my major professor, and thought I’d share. They’re from a series of mock trials that were held for this past fall semester’s computer forensics class. The students had the opportunity to take the stand and present expert witness testimony regarding the evidence that they had examined as part of a class project. We had a real courtroom, a real judge, real attorneys, and another university’s students sitting as a jury. I sat as the accused for a few cases, and also helped guide the defense attorneys through some of the more technical aspects of the forensics.
Thankfully, with the inexperience of the expert witnesses, and coaching my attorney a bit (he had an engineering background, which helped), I was found to be not guilty .
