Description
Remember Ross Compton, that man from Ohio who was charged with aggravated arson and insurance fraud based on his pacemaker data? He and his lawyer tried to convince the court to disregard that evidence, arguing that it was obtained in an illegal search. Well, the judge that heard the case didn't see it that way: he has decided to allow the suspect's pacemaker results to be used as evidence against him in an upcoming trial.
