US v. Cervantes, 15-50459

In a criminal case in which police officers conducted a warrantless, suspicionless search of the defendant's hotel room pursuant to a condition of the mandatory supervision the defendant was serving for the final year of his three-year California county jail sentence, his sentence and conviction of felony counterfeiting and drug offenses are affirmed where: 1) for Fourth Amendment purposes, mandatory supervision is more akin to parole than probation, and 2) the search was authorized under the search condition because the officers had probable cause to believe that the hotel room constituted 'premises' under the defendant's control.
