Justices say 24/7 video surveillance violated man’s rights in Colorado Springs
DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled that police officers violated a man’s constitutional rights when they installed a video camera on a utility pole near his home and spied on him for months without getting a search warrant.
The Denver Post reports the justices said Monday the 24-hour-a-day, 3-month-long surveillance of the Colorado Springs man’s front yard, house, driveway and part of his backyard violated his Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.
His conviction and 15-year-prison sentence for drug trafficking were overturned.
