However though, this has nothing to do with her rights. She is in contempt of court my friend, WITHOLDING EVIDENCE is the worst thing you could EVER do. (in terms of our court system.)
They can make her sit in a jail cell the rest of her life, she is in Contempt! SHE has to turn over the evidence. That supersedes the fifth amendment. Its set up this way for a reason.
Imagine if CEOs could just destroy the evidence of their crimes or not turn it over because they "Plead the 5th, that evidence makes me look guilty!"
This women must not have a lawyer yet. lol you can't withhold evidence, especially if the evidence makes you look guilty!edit on 24-1-2012 by truthinfact because: (no reason given)
I'm sorry your honor, I was really high when I put the password on there, I just can't remember
Probably because it's pretty easy to recover a windows password.

This doesn't make alot of sense to me. We moved a few years ago and kept our laptops out while sending the desktops to storage , months later when my daughter went to use her desktop she no longer remembered the p/w . I paid $10 on Ebay to buy a disk that gave us the p/w in minutes. LOLOLOL

Sometimes they just cant get into the computer:
This is why they are asking for the PW, if she used good encryption not even the FBI or CIA would be able to get in.

She should have re-written over the hard drive ten or fifteen times the night she knew she was being charged.
Or the fireplace... Whichever is more convenient.
I marvel at the sheer stupidity of people that hold evidence against themselves.
(BTW - I am NOT saying its right for them to make her give up her password. I do NOT agree with the ruling. I just don't agree with her keeping the hard drive around either, heh.)
