MA: Prolonged GPS monitoring as punishment for CP conviction was unreasonable under Grady

Prolonged GPS monitoring for punishment for child pornography, a non-contact offense, was unreasonable under Grady v. North Carolina because the state’s interest was only marginal compared to the interest of the offender. Commonwealth v. Feliz, 481 Mass. 689 (Mar. 26, 2019).

Doesn’t involve a search issue, but remarkable nonetheless: This child pornography conviction is reversed for insufficient evidence because the government didn’t exclude others as possible users of the computer. United States v. Pothier, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 9003 (1st Cir. Mar. 26, 2019).*
