Here’s an interesting new case on the scope of cell phone warrants: United States v. Winn, __ F.Supp.3d __, 2015 WL 553286 (S.D.Ill. February 09, 2015) (Rosenstengel, J.). In the case, the state applied for a search warrant to search the cell phone of a man named Winn. Winn had been seen using his cell phone to take pictures or videos of young girls in public places while he was rubbing his genitals. The government asked for and obtained a warrant to search Winn’s phone for all evidence of public indecency stored inside it.
