27124 - State v. Dykes

In this opinion, the Court affirms as modified the circuit court's order requiring that Petitioner be subject to satellite monitoring for the rest of her life pursuant to sections 23-3-540(C) and (H) of the South Carolina Code of Laws. The Court holds that although the statutory scheme's initial mandatory imposition of lifetime monitoring is constitutional, the lifetime requirement without judicial review is unconstitutional.
