Textings are admissions

Detective Dennis Bort of the Berea Police Department is quoted in a November 27, 2012 cleveland-dot-com article. He tells the story of arresting three students at Baldwin Wallace College. They were cooking up a batch of MDMA, of the drug Ecstasy. He reports they were stealing materials from the labs and cooking the stuff in dorm rooms.

While they had leads on the students, it was the students themselves that provided a complete and thorough confession. Detective Bort subpoenaed the text records of the student's phones and obtained a complete record of the thefts and drug charges.  The students texted many messages giving complete details of the crime; providing a complete admission.

Case closed.

Text records are used to prosecute drowsy drivers

When investigating the causes of an accident, police have used texting records as evidence that the driver involved in the accident has not had enough sleep.  They bring in cell phone uses records, calls and texts, to show that the driver, in their opinion, could not have slept a proper amount of time and was therefore drowsy.
