W.D.Mo.: Any reasonable person on supervised release would know a computer search condition extended to a cell phone

Defendant was on supervised release, and he had a computer search condition. The court concludes that any reasonable person would understand a cell phone would be a “computer” for the search condition. In any event, it had already been searched by local police under a search warrant. United States v. Phillips, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199720 (W.D. Mo. Nov. 6, 2017), adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 198569 (W.D. Mo. Dec. 4, 2017). [After all: before Riley we argued cell phones were “computers” subject to the warrant requirement.”]
