Is cell tower tracking “junk science”?

Now that Wisconsin follows Daubert, perhaps you can challenge the cell tower tracking evidence the State plans to present in your case as “junk science.”  Click here for an ABA Journal story about how to do it.  According to defense expert Michael Cherry:  “No one who understands the relevant science would ever claim that data from a single cell tower can reliably be used to specify the location of a caller at the time a particular call is made.”  Click here for the decision and order denying the admission of cell tower tracking evidence in U.S. v. Evans, Case No. 10-CR-747-3 (United States district Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division).   Click here for a copy of defense counsel’s winning brief and here for On Point’s original post about Daubert‘s arrival in Wisconsin.
