Supreme Judicial Court, January 11, 2016

 “[W]here a parole officer has reasonable suspicion to believe that there is evidence in the parolee's home that the parolee has violated, or is about to violate, a condition of his parole, such suspicion is sufficient to justify a warrantless search of the home. “

“Article 14 offers greater protection to parolees than does the Fourth Amendment.  Article 14 does not, however, offer as much protection to parolees as it affords to probationers.”
