CA8: Halfway house resident’s cell phone subject to suspicionless search

Defendant’s cell phone was subject to search when he resided at a residential reentry program after release from an FCI. Child porn was found on the phone. Defendant’s reliance on Riley’s warrant requirement is misplaced. Yes, this is a cell phone, but it’s a Samson-like parole search. United States v. Jackson, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 14762 (8th Cir. Aug. 10, 2017).
