Criminal Lawyer Update: United States Supreme Court Rules That GPS Monitoring of a Person Constitutes a Search, and it Grants Certiorari on Whether a State’s GPS Monitoring Program for Sex Offenders is a Reasonable Search Under the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution

by | Apr 15, 2015

In Grady v. North Carolina, 575 U.S. ____ (2015) (March 30, 2015), the United States Supreme Court has granted certiorari on whether the non-consensual GPS monitoring of a sex offender constitutes an unreasonable search under the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.  In granting certiorari, it held that the monitoring program is a search, but the question of whether it is a reasonable search was remanded back to the Supreme Court of North Carolina.  I’ll keep monitoring this case to keep you updated.
