Chris Marsico, a graduate student, is using this semester to focus on the forensic possibilities of devices like iPODs. Just this summer, a group of car thieves in the UK was arrested, due in part to evidence discovered on an iPOD.
“You have to be prepared for anything; criminals are crafty,” Marsico said.
After graduation in May, Marisco hopes to work for the FBI. But for now, his concern is developing a standard practice regarding how digital evidence may be used in court.
