KS: Parole search waiver permitted suspicionless home searches

Defendant’s parole search waiver permitted suspicionless searches of his home, despite the fact the statute didn’t specifically mention it. The court balances the state’s need with the intrusion on privacy, and there is a continuum of much lower privacy expectations for those on probation and parole. This search was reasonable. State v. Toliver, 2018 Kan. LEXIS 173 (May 18, 2018).

When the County Court suppressed evidence, the state appealed to District Court which reversed. The state could appeal, and there was no double jeopardy bar. State v. Thalken, 299 Neb. 857, 2018 Neb. LEXIS 90 (May 17, 2018).*
