DA to contact attorneys in controversial cellphone tracking cases

Mecklenburg County's district attorney says his office will begin contacting attorneys handling cases in which police used a controversial tracking device. It's a technology so secret that police have to sign nondisclosure agreements to buy it. 

It's called a cell site simulator, and is being used by law enforcement to track suspects in criminal cases both during investigations and also after they've been charged. The practice has drawn criticism from defense attorneys who say they knew nothing about it until recently.

"The concern about the cell site simulator is that it would unlawfully capture information for use in a criminal case," said Charlotte defense attorney James Wyatt. "It could be the location of a defendant, it could be listening in to their calls."

In Charlotte police have gotten 522 court orders from judges allowing them to use the tracking device. 

READ: DA's Office statement regarding cell site simulators

The review by the DA's office found that the majority of those instances involved tracking suspects who had warrants for their arrest. In only two cases, the DA said, was the device use to investigate cases before an arrest was made and in both cases the DA's review showed information was turned over to the defendant's attorneys.

Still, use of the device, often called "Stingray," remains the subject of many concerns.

"I worry about us losing all our rights and being watched," said Charlotte City Councilwoman Claire Fallon. Fallon, who heads the City Council's Community Safety Committee, said she wants to know more. "I have some questions and would want to talk to the DA and the police chief about it."

The district attorney's office said they’re still not sure about how the Stingray was used in at least 40 other criminal cases. 

That, James Wyatt said, is likely to inflame concerns among defense attorneys. 

"Defense attorneys will not take what the DA says for granted. The review does not end the story.  Defense attorneys will want to vigorously investigate those," Wyatt said.
