IN THE NEWS: RULING ISSUED IN CELLPHONE TOWER CASE

MIAMI (AP) -- It's an important ruling in a big issue over how changing technology is used. A federal appeals court has ruled investigators don't need a search warrant to get cellphone tower location records in criminal prosecutions. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Miami has says authorities were in the clear when they got 67 days worth of records from MetroPCS for a robbery suspect. They got the records with a court order, which has a lower burden of proof than a search warrant. The records were used to convict the suspect of a string of armed robberies and he got a 162-year prison term. The judges note that these days, cellphone users know or should know that towers are used to monitor their whereabouts.

Some who use the services say using sensors is less intrusive than monitoring parents with cameras.
