Many Flaws in GPS Tracking of Sex Offenders - Part Two

Today, we will continue to discuss satellite-based monitoring of sex offenders by looking at a recent case decided by the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Many Flaws in GPS Tracking of Sex Offenders - Part One

In 2006, North Carolina's legislature approved satellite-based monitoring of sex offenders. The monitoring was touted as a means of protecting the public after convicted sex offenders were released from prison.

At the time, many states were enacting similar sex offender legislation after receiving funds for pilot programs from the federal Adam Walsh Act.
