In November of 2015, a Miami man was found guilty of the murder of his wife after he shot her and then immediately posted a photo of her body to his Facebook page with the note, “Im [sic] going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys takecare [sic]Facebook people you will see me in the news.” This information undoubtedly sealed his fate in his criminal trial.
Upon the founding of this country, the drafters of the Constitution felt it was of great importance to give everyone the right against self-incrimination. Those that take to social media to post themselves committing crimes are effectively waiving this right. In essence, this man admitted to the world he had committed murder.
Bottom line: If you commit crimes, do yourself and your lawyer a favor by not documenting the crimes via photos, videos, or social media. If you or someone you know has been arrested, call Orlando Gonzalez for a free consultation. (561) 500-4529
