    There's Moore to Life

    There's Moore to Life
    Have you ever felt lost, lonely, and become your own worst enemy? I had never thought I would become the person I did. Alcohol and drugs had been the highlight of my life. I would do pretty much anything for it, including lying, stealing, and robbing others to feed my own addictions. I became a very angry man over the years and did a lot of jail time because of my associations and behaviour. After almost 30 convictions, 17 years of drinking and drugging, I finally became emotionally numb and did not know how to react to anyone or anything. In September 7th, 2005, I walked an even harder road as I truly felt to be free from the way I was living. My book talks about the emotional rollercoaster I had been on throughout my life and how I became sober and clean while at the same time putting myself through school to get a college education. I could never payback the community for the rewards I have received; although, I try through volunteerism. This is why I want to share my experiences, strengths, and hope. Included are 12 testimonies from people who know me and tell it as it was, from a sergeant of the OPP station, a jail guard, my former probation officer, counsellors, both parents, son, and a few ex-girlfriends etc...

    Search and Seizure of Digital Evidence

    Search and Seizure of Digital Evidence
    Recent Scholarship
    Moore explains the difficulties in applying traditional Fourth Amendment jurisprudence several of the more common warrantless search doctrines, in order to determine what aspects of traditional search and seizure doctrine apply to crimes involving technology. To amplify his points, he discusses several high technology crimes. Additionally, he studies the nature of digital evidence in order to show how its volatile nature requires a greater understanding of when evidence may or may not be legally seized and searched.
