United States v. Jackson, No. 16-3807 (8th Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed the district court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress evidence obtained during a search of his cell phone. The court held that defendant had no legitimate expectation of privacy in the cell phone, and the government had substantial interest in preventing recidivism that justified the intrusion. In this case, the search occurred while defendant was serving a term of supervised release and residing at the Fort Des Moines Community Correctional Facility.
