Court upholds tracking suspects with GPS

A Fairfax County man, a convicted sex offender being tracked by police as a suspect in a string of sexual assaults, did not have his rights violated when Fairfax police secretly placed a global positioning system (GPS) device on his vehicle without a warrant, the Virginia Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday. After a string of 11 attacks on women in eastern Fairfax County in 2008, many in the Falls Church area, detectives zeroed in on David L. Foltz because he lived in the area and was previously convicted of rape. He had served 17 years in prison and was released in 2007.

Five years after optometrist Salvatore J. Culosi was shot to death outside his home by a Fairfax County police officer, that officer will go on trial in January, to face a wrongful death civil suit filed by Culosi's parents, court records show.
