Guam - A data retrieval company in California will be able to determine if local businessman James Adkins' mobile phone was tampered with and whether photos he took were deleted. District Court Judge Joaquin Manibusan issued an order today granting Adkins' request to have the phone examined.
When he got his cellular phone back from police, Adkins contends the photos he took on his device of a car crash that resulted in his arrest last year are missing. Data recovery specialists in the Golden State will now determine whether any tampering of the phone or memory card occurred and whether any photos were deleted and if they can be retrieved.
Just last week the judge upheld numerous claims Adkins filed against Police Chief Paul Suba and Guam Police officers D.B. Anciano and Serafino Artui by denying the defendants' motions to dismiss.
