It had to happen. Now, the ubiquitous nature of social networks has resulted in a litigant claiming that he was on MySpace at the time of the crime. The argument didn't go far with the lower Court; but, the appellate court ruled that it was a factual question that the jury was entitled to determine. I knew there was a reason I spent so much time blogging, and tweeting, and facebooking, and just plain browsing the web. Hey, maybe I shouldn't be deleting my search history after all? Perhaps the embarrassment of the sites I visit will be easier to take than a conviction? Decisions, decisions.
