State v. Velasquez

In State v. Velasquez, 672 P.2d 1254 (Utah 1983), the Court concluded that the reasonableness of an adult parolee's expectation of privacy could not be determined without considering "both . . . the government function involved" and "the private interest . . . affected." Id. at 1259 The Court then "balanced the interests of both the state and the individual" and held that it was "not unreasonable for a conditionally released convict to be accorded a more narrowly protected privacy interest in order to facilitate" the operation of the adult parole system. Id. at 1259-60.
