The State that it is unconstitutional to make level two offenders wear the tracking device once they finish their parole or probationary period. A decision that hits close to home. Before the ruling, those classified as sexually dangerous predators, or level two offenders, paid for and wore the device for the rest of their lives. The ruling states the GPS monitoring after a person has completed his or her prison sentence and probationary period is a significant intrusion of privacy.

The state of Georgia has some of the harshest penalties in the country for convicted sex offenders. When you are charged with a sexual offense, there is much more at stake than just your reputation. A sex crime conviction forces judges to impose mandatory sentencing which in many cases can be a minimum of 10 years in prison, with the very real possibility of being sentenced to life behind bars. All those convicted of a sex crime must register as sexual offenders for the rest of their lives, limiting employment opportunities and residency options in the future.
