Can lawyers look at social media during a case?

Even if your social media accounts are restricted to “just friends” or are private, the prosecutor is likely to obtain information that may be relevant to your case. Courts have ruled that prosecutors can obtain data from posts, images and messages on social networks. The amount of social networks allowed in court will vary from case to case. In most cases, lawyers can work it out among themselves and agree on a time frame in which the request will be stopped.

For example, they can agree to request only images and content from the date of the accident to 3 months before.
