Does anyone (who is a criminal defense lawyer) turn over their Ring
Camera footage to police? On the one
hand I would like to help my
neighbors. On the other hand I don't
want to help police/prosecution. Plus I
don't want to conflict myself out of
cases. Just wondered what what y'all
thought.
Disclaimer this is just a hypothetical
and not a an actual dilemma (yet).

This is a joke right? Before I even touch the selfishness of not helping your neighbors, being a good citizen, or seeing that justice is done, you are worried about being conflicted out of cases? What?

Oh sorry I just thought I’d weigh in as a federal prosecutor to your question. Didn’t know you just wanted responses in an echo chamber. Maybe if you wanted that you should just asked you colleagues in the gallery while you are waiting for your clients to be seen by the judge.

I wouldn't turn over my ring camera to law enforcement

Thank you for responding as an actual criminal defense attorney.

Somewhat with A1. You can’t ethically take a case where you are likely to be a witness, right? … So if you have video footage and might be called to authenticate it, that in and of itself conflicts you out.

If a crime were committed, how hard would it be for the 5-oh to get a warrant from a judge? Once they have that, here’s the vid.

Again, ring cameras mostly catch theft. You'd be surprised how little effort law enforcement puts into investigating. You aren't super likely to get a formal subpoena or warrant.

When a case warrants it, the subpoenas are better served on Ring/Amazon. Doesn't need to involve you, unless you want it to.

PERM question.

Hi everyone I work at EY and have 3 YOE. EY started the perm process after 2.5 years, the role is for manager. It is standard that managers have 5 years of experience, does this mean that the green card will only be available in 2 years from now when you typically make manager (maybe 1 if early promoted)? From my understanding I have another 6 months with the PWD, Recruitment and then filing items, so it will be ready relatively soon. Just trying to make heads or tails of it.
