Indiana Legislature Amends Law to Allow Judges to Grant Search/Arrest Warrants Electronically

As reported by the Indiana Court times here, House Enrolled Act 1009 (Public Law 170-2014) defined electronic communication service as one that provides users with the ability to send or receive wire or electronic communications.  



" Judges and law enforcement officers in several Indiana counties have been utilizing modern conveniences such as smartphones and electronic mail to improve the efficiency of traditional search and arrest warrant procedures. These counties are taking advantage of the amendments to Indiana Code 35-33-5-8 that permits a warrant to be issued following a judge’s receipt of supporting sworn testimony via electronic mail or other electronic transmission."

While there are certainly issues that can arise when relying on newer technologies, it should be noted that the federal court system has been exclusively using electronic filing, which also requires sworn statements, for approximately 10 years or so.  Can you envision issues that might arise under the new law?  What are your concerns?
