The North Carolina Supreme Court has just struck down lifetime GPS-monitoring for persons required to register as sex offenders who are not on parole or probation as unreasonable under the Fourth Amendment (Search and Seizure).
The importance of this case is that the court considered evidence of low recidivism among registrants generally, notwithstanding unsupported legislative findings to the contrary, and absence of evidence of efficacy in advancing the government’s stated goals of solving and deterring sex crimes.
