Can internet search history be used as evidence? What if you delete your history or can they still find that? I have been arrested for a non-violent crime.

    Depending on the nature of the crime, search history may be circumstantial evidence that the crime has been committed. For example, if the charge is for possession and/or distribution of child pornography, the person's internet search history may be relevant evidence of criminal activity. Without knowing more about what the "crime" may be, it is difficult to give a more precise answer.

    Yes. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.
