Criminal Practice – Murder – Evidence – Cell Phone Records – Authentication (access required)

State v. Crawley Even though the records custodian from the telephone company did not personally send the phone records at issue to the police, he testified that he believed the records shown to him at trial to be accurate and that he was familiar with such documents. He testified that the records were kept in the normal course of business and that the documents presented at trial were the same as those normally sent to law enforcement in connection with a case. The witness’s testimony was sufficient to show that the records were, as the state claimed, phone company records. Any question as to the accuracy or reliability of such records was a jury question.
