2013 HTCIA Case of the Year Award Recipient
We are pleased to announce the 2013 HTCIA Case of the Year Award recipients:
Raul Mejias, HTCIA Member, Computer Forensic Examiner, Riverside County District Attorney’s Office and Special Agent Stephen Crist, Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The case of the year involved a rare circumstance in which high tech crime escalated to homicide. Examiner Mejias and Special Agent Crist were instrumental in unraveling both the homicide and the identity theft scheme that led to it. The investigation led to four subjects receiving sentences of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, and a fifth subject receiving a sentence of 25 years to life.
Please join us during the 2013 HTCIA International Conference & Training Expo awards banquet on September 10, 2013 where Mr Mejias and SA Crist will be honored for this accomplishment.
