Video evidence from mobile phones is increasingly being admitted in court as the trend for capturing all aspects of daily life increases.
However, with this boom of home-made footage has come an increase in doctored or fake evidence, to add weight to arguments.
A recent example is that of Rex Altree from Gilbert, Arizona, who has been accused of using faked footage to get his drink driving case dismissed in November 2011.
According to CBS 5, a more in-depth investigation of the footage was launched after the arresting officer noticed discrepancies in the video.
Forensic analysis of the video showed that the dates and times on the footage had been altered.
Mr Altree is now facing charges of perjury, forgery, tampering with physical evidence and obstructing a criminal investigation, on top of his drink-driving case.
The case highlights how investigators need to rely on computer and mobile phone forensics as technology becomes an integral to everyday life.
