What happened to innocent until proven guilty? The court can assume that she is guilty because she wiped her hard drive, now? Isn't it the job of the _prosecution_ to try to obtain the evidence for a case (eg, siezing the HD with a subpoena), NOT the defendants? Why was the drive even still in her posession. I think she should be held in contempt, but not declared guilty by default.
