Citation: Jones v. United States, Case No. 8:02-cr-122-T-24EAJ, 8:06-cv-851-T-24EAJ, 2006 WL 1406584 (M.D. Fla. May 22, 2006)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: Susan C. Bucklew
Rule(s): 4th Amendment

Defendant moved to vacate or correct an illegal sentence, alleging that his Fourth Amendment rights were violated when a co-conspirator was allowed to testify using formerly suppressed evidence obtained from pagers.


The Court denied Defendant’s motion. Although most of Defendant’s argument was procedurally barred, the Court quoted a passage pointing out that Defendant had no right to privacy in electronic pager communications when a co-conspirator waived privacy rights and testified. Moreover, Defendant’s ineffective assistance of counsel claim was denied as Defendant did not show prejudice or deficient performance on behalf of his counsel.
