MA: Def was on pretrial GPS monitoring, and it can be used as evidence in another case

Defendant agreed to GPS monitoring as a condition of pretrial release in another case. Thus, his motion to suppress the monitoring is denied when he’s accused of a burglary, and the GPS puts him there. His argument was that he didn’t think that he’d be monitored “all the time,” just when he was not going around the person in the no contact order. [How that would work is hard to see.] Commonwealth v. Johnson, 2017 Mass. App. LEXIS 41 (April 7, 2017).

Police had information that defendant was selling drugs from his car. When he was stopped and told to get out, officers could see Suboxone on the front seat. That led to a reasonable search of the car. United States v. Silva, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 52990 (D. Mass. April 6, 2017).*
