Homeless Probationers Can’t Charge GPS; Judge Will Not Punish Them

A judge in Massachusetts highest state court ruled that a man on probation who could not charge his required GPS device due to homelessness was not subject to punishment. The individual could not find reliable power in shelters.

Officially, that situation does violate the probation order and a probation revocation hearing ruled against the man. The state judge argued such punishment would basically punish the individual for being homeless. Unfortunately, the judge had no solution for the problem.
