Forensic Cellphone Analysis

A successful audit of mobile phone data enabled a client to deliver a favorable ending for their potential court proceedings:

“As a lawyer, I represent a young mother, who was accused of causing substantial burns on her one-year-old son’s body. The basis of the accusations were certain text messages between the child’s father and her. We hired Larry Dalman to investigate her phone. Not only did he demonstrate why those texts were bogus, he was also able to identify a series of texts and photos that implicated the father, not the mother. They showed that the injuries must have occurred while the child was with the father, rather than the mother. With this, the prosecutor’s office suddenly decided to not pursue criminal charges against her and to not seek the termination of her parental rights. I recommend Larry Dalman and will hire him the next time we need forensic services like this.” -Charles P. Farrar PLLC

“The jury saw the mother and daughter were very untruthful about what happened here,” said Elias Muawad, Heath’s Bloomfield Hills-based attorney. “The daughter admitted to lying during part of my questions. The mother suddenly had amnesia and could not remember the answers to my questions.”

Muawad pointed to an allegation where the victim said Heath made her view pornography before the alleged sexual encounter. They used Larry Dalman, an East Lansing-based computer forensics expert, to prove that point false, Muawad said.
