MPR News Update, PM Edition for Jan. 17, 2017

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Good afternoon! The Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that you're not protected by the Fifth Amendment (self-incrimination) when a judge orders you to use your fingerprint to unlock your cellphone. The ruling came about in the case of a man convicted of burglary - a detective obtained a search warrant for the man's cellphone but was unable to unlock it, so a court ordered him to use his fingerprint to unlock it. Is it the same as being forced to testify against oneself? No, Judge Tracy Smith wrote on behalf of the three-judge panel in today's opinion. | Forecast
