INTERNATIONAL: Convicted pedophile ordered to wear GPS tracker for life

anklet2NEW YORK POST – A convicted pedophile must wear a GPS monitoring anklet– until the day he dies, a court has ruled.

Michael Belleau was released from custody in 2010 after being convicted of molesting a young boy in 1992 and assaulting a young girl in 1994, according to the Washington Times.

After serving his time behind bars, Belleau, 72, of Green Bay, Wisconsin, was civilly committed as a danger to others in 2005. He was then released five years later after a psychologist determined that he was not likely to commit another sexual offense.

But in a 3-0 decision members of the Seventh US Circuit Court of Appeals last week upheld a 2008 Wisconsin law that forces Belleau to wear a waterproof GPS device around his ankle at all times for the rest of his life.

The septuagenarian had sued the state last year with help from the ACLU, claiming the rule violated his Fourth Amendment privacy rights and was an ex post facto law, meaning it was enacted after he already served his time.
