Prosecutors will be able to use a man’s pacemaker data against him

A Middletown, Ohio man charged with arson has lost his battle to have data from his pacemaker used against him in court. Prosecutors say that the story told to police by Ross Compton, 59, doesn’t match the heart rate data obtained from his pacemaker with a warrant. “As far as I can tell this is the first case that I can find that relates to the police obtaining a search warrant for pacemaker data,” Jon Marshall, Assistant Butler County Prosecutor said in court Tuesday.
