Can a video be used as evidence if it has been altered? 2 Answers as of April 07, 2011I have a pending case and I have just received my discovery packet, inside of the packet there is a video. I watched the video and it has been altered. What should I do? Can the state use this video against me ? You can clearly see where the video has been altered. Is there anyway I can find out who altered the video and what if anything can be done ?

It would appear that you may already have counsel, but we would strongly recommend that you retain a criminal lawyer, if you have not done so, and that you discuss all the possibilities with your attorney. You might also discuss with your own attorney the idea of hiring a forensic computer expert. Good luck!
