NC: Appeals court reverses twice-convicted sex offender’s lifetime GPS monitoring

[ 5/15/18]

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A state appeals court has reversed a ruling that would have required a twice-convicted sex offender wear a GPS monitoring bracelet for the rest of his life.

In 1997, Torrey Dale Grady, 39, pleaded no contest to a second-degree sex offense, and in 2006, he pleaded guilty to taking indecent liberties with a child. Both incidents took place in New Hanover County.

Although Grady was not initially required to enroll in the state’s satellite-based monitoring program (SBM) after either conviction, in 2013 the court held an SBM “bring-back” hearing and determined his convictions were both “sexually violent offenses” and ordered him to enroll in the program for the remainder of his life.

In his appeal, which was eventually heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, Grady argued the lifetime enrollment in the SBM program violated his right to freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, as provided by the Fourth Amendment. The nation’s highest court remanded the case for N.C. courts to determine the reasonableness of Grady’s lifetime enrollment in the program.
