People v. BryantAnnotate this Case
Defendant was convicted of possessing a concealed, loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. On appeal, defendant challenged the trial court's term of supervision requiring defendant submit to searches of text messages, emails, and photographs on any cellular phone or other electronic device in his possession or residence. The court concluded that the electronic search was invalid under People v. Lent. Pursuant to Lent, the court explained that the condition in this case has no relationship to defendant's crime, the use of electronic devices was not itself criminal, and the electronic search condition was not reasonably related to preventing future criminality. Accordingly, the court ordered the trial court to strike this term. The court otherwise affirmed the judgment.
