    Probation and game cameras.

    Ghitch's recent trouble with the ginseng thieves reminded me of a question I had based on a similar experience.

    Game camera picks up somebody like the ginseng thieves in question, good pictures and the camera location is easily checked by a visible landmark as being on private property. Would this be evidence enough of trespassing, a crime, to revoke a criminal's probation?

    It depends on the terms of their probation.

    Learn something new every day. I had no idea that probation had variations to it involving criminal activity.

    And frankly I'm surprised photographic evidence like that would be admissable. Seems like every time I turn around I hear "sorry, cant do jack unless the officer witnesses it firsthand. Call us and we will try to catch him in the act next time. "

    Unless it is a government camera. In which case, the citation will be in your mail by morning.

    There's a difference between admissibility and whether the police or prosecutors want to prosecute. In this case, it's a little reverse from what you would think.

    Photographs from game cameras can be admissible evidence in court if there is someone there to testify where he placed the cameras and that he set the date and time correctly (a date and time stamp will be important), they accurately show the area and have not been altered..

    However, police and prosecutors won'r necessarily want to get involved without a witness and they are afforded that discretion. It's not a hard and fast legal standard. It's just what they prefer.

    Don't have to participate. You can use your discretion.
