E.D.Cal.: Probation search of cell phone was reasonable condition

Search of defendant’s cell phone as a probation search condition was reasonable. United States v. Canady, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 169069 (E.D. Cal. Oct. 12, 2017).

The officer did not have reasonable suspicion for a seizure of defendant’s vehicle because one of the owners had a suspended license and wasn’t there. “[T]he reasonable inference was that the driver of the vehicle was one of the registered owners, and there was no hunch or suspicion of criminal activity by the registered owners.” State v. Levell, 2017 Iowa App. LEXIS 1060 (Oct. 11, 2017).*
