Electronic messages never really private

Cell phones, instant messages and global positioning satellites are everywhere. But awareness that information sent over these devices is traceable doesn’t seem to be.

“I think people, in their lazy behavior, think they’re communicating one on one,” said John Donovan, a technology expert whose company, Telecom Visions Inc., is based in Garden City. “But there’s no real guarantee of privacy.”

And these devices can be instruments of undoing for those who run afoul of the law. That’s the case for Melissa Weber, 27, a teacher in Queens who was arraigned Friday on statutory rape charges stemming from her alleged sexual relationship with one of her 14-year-old students.
