New Law Requires Parolees to Consent to Searches

January 9, 2013 Criminal Law and Procedure

The Michigan legislature took steps to further restrict the rights of parolees from prison. As a condition of release, parolees must now provide written consent to all searches of their person or property by peace officers or parole officers upon demand. The only exception is that the consent does not extend to searches that are conducted with the sole intent to harass or intimidate. MCL 791.236(19).
