CA10: SW not needed to obtain GPS location information from parolee’s GPS monitor

Defendant was on community supervision with GPS monitoring. He does not contest that, just the fact the location information was obtained without a search warrant. The probation-parole search exception doesn’t require a search warrant to obtain that information. United States v. Mathews, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 19611 (10th Cir. July 1, 2019).

Defendant was driving at a constant speed in the center lane without following too close. When the officer pulled behind him, he slowed for about 20 seconds and a truck passed on the right. That did not constitute an offense of not driving as fast as the other vehicles, and the stop was invalid. State v. Gray, 2019-Ohio-2662, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 2758 (6th Dist. June 28, 2019).*
