State v. Gibson, Nos. L?13?1223, L?13?1222, WL 1962850 (Ohio Ct. App. May 01, 2015)

Key Insight: Court of Appeals said that a combination of both personal knowledge of the appearance and substance of public Facebook profile pages, taken in conjunction with direct and circumstantial evidence was sufficient to meet threshold admissibility requirements such that a reasonable juror could conclude that the various Facebook profile pages were attributable to appellant; therefore, the trial court did not abuse its discretion in admitting printed pages of images from the public portions of Facebook profiles.

Nature of Case: Criminal

Electronic Data Involved: Facebook (social media/social network)
