Michael Cherry, Manfred Schenk and Joseph Kennedy are the only experts to have ever won Innocence, Habeas, Dauberts and the Exclusion of both Drive Tests and Call Detail Records (CDR's), against Historical Cell Site Analysis / Cell Tower Tracking. We know the science. We are members of the Communications Society for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
Convictions, based on the location of cell towers, or their sectors, can be reversed, using our unpublished knowledge, as newly discovered information. We are currently working on several death penalty cases.
We frequently challenge, modify and exclude exhibits that use Call Detail Records and Drive Test Proximity Maps. Unfortunately, this unreliable evidence can be arranged in an endless number of theoretical, but unprovable cell phone location / movement theories. For example:
We are Biometric, Computer and Cellular Subject Matter Experts. Michael Cherry addressed the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee. His topic was Information Technology Security and the latest border-control systems that authenticate the identity of individuals through the use of iris or fingerprint scans. He also discussed the security implications of continuous software updates. Link to First Information Fortress.
INCOME and RESIDENCY TAXES - SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS
Taxing Agencies often rely on the contents of cell phone company records to determine the location of the caller at the time he or she placed or received a call. However, unless properly--expertly--interpreted, the contents of such records can be misleading. For example, a caller can be physically in New Jersey but use telephone equipment located in New York. We can provide the expertise necessary to correctly process the data in the cell phone records. We have written a computer program that can analyze the contents of cell phone records and the equipment used to determine whether in fact a person was in a particular location such as New York State when he or she placed or received a call.
Some of our groundbreaking Daubert and Innocence cases include:
We are members of several Wireless Associations including the California Wireless Association and the Communications Society for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
STATE OF FLORIDA V. ADRIAN DEON BROWN On May 11, 2011 Adrian Deon Brown was found not guilty of murder and he walked out of the Ocala, FL County Courthouse. The defense team included Attorney Nicole Hardin, Michael Cherry and Manfred Schenk. Prosecution experts included two Radio Frequency (RF) Engineers, one from Sprint and one from Verizon.
STATE OF CONNECTICUT V. ANTIONE PARIS DAVIS On December 15, 2010 Antoine Paris Davis was acquitted in the Middletown, CT Superior Court. He was charged with home invasion robbery, burglary, assault, larceny, conspiracy and accessory to kidnapping with a firearm. His defense attorney Aaron J. Romano used Manfred Schenk, as his Cell Tower Expert. The prosecution used a Verizon RF Engineer Manager.
On Sept. 20, 2012 the employment of Messrs. Joyce, Bligh, and Cashman was reinstated by their employer National Grid. Their employment was terminated eight months earlier when outside cell phone experts accused them of stealing time based on cell tower call detail records (CDR’s). The outside cell phone experts choose not to appear at the final labor arbitration hearing as Manfred Schenk was there to challenge their interpretations.
I would like to endorse Michael Cherry for anyone who has a case where
cellular tower records are being used to locate the position of a defendant
or witness. He assisted me greatly in my last trial that ended in a not
guilty verdict. I spoke with the jurors who all stated after the cross exam
of the state's expert and our presentation of evidence, the cellular tower
location was not even a consideration. We should all be pushing for this
evidence to be tossed out in a Daubert/Frye hearing. While one was held in
my case and the judge allowed the evidence in, the jury was bright enough to
know what to do with this type of evidence- throw it out!
Thank you Mike and Manfred!

Mike and Manfred,
Lisa Roberts was released yesterday afternoon. The DA will not
attempt to prosecute the case again. Thank you so much for your
work on this case. It was pretty amazing to be there to pick up Lisa
at the prison gate as she was released after serving 12 years for a
crime she did not commit. Cheers, William
