The case is one of the first known examples of police seizing Facebook user data as part of an abortion investigation.
Facebook gave a Nebraska teenager’s Facebook messages to police investigating an alleged abortion, leading to criminal charges for the teen and her mother, Forbes reported.
Celeste Burgess, 17, was charged in July with allegedly removing, concealing or abandoning a dead body and hiding another person’s death following what authorities say was a medication abortion when she was 23 weeks pregnant. Her mother, Jessica Burgess, is also facing charges for allegedly helping her end the pregnancy. Both women’s charges stem from a Nebraska state law banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
