U.S. Court approves warrantless search of mobile phones

After a drug bust in Indiana, the cell phones of those indicted and arrested were checked and their numbers recorded during the investigations by the police. However, one of those arrested protested against this act as believed it as a violation of his privacy. If the Fourth Amendment is to be consulted, all unreasonable searches are indeed a violation and the person in question refused to part with any information that his cell phone contained and he also refused to reveal his cell phone number. However, when the case was brought in for judgment, the Appeal was rejected and the court not just ruled the suspect in for a 10 year prison sentence but also disregarded his claim for privacy in context if the mobile content checks carried out by the investigating officers.
