Without the ankle monitor, she could freely attend appointments and, after birth, take care of her newborn baby without restrictions, especially in emergency situations, she said in court documents.
She is her son’s primary caretaker and the ankle monitor prevents her from providing educational support to her home-schooled son, according to the documents. If the ankle monitor were removed, she could participate in the co-parenting deposit, educational activities outside the home, and mandatory school trips.
Before the requirement to wear the ankle monitor, she worked as a veterinary technician, but she no longer has a job. She is allowed to leave her home to work, but three job postings were prematurely cut due to her inability to complete tasks due to complications and restrictions imposed by the ankle monitor, she said in court documents.
She is the sole caregiver of an elderly relative who was recently hospitalized with COVID-19, and the ankle monitor has barred her from participating in decision-making for her relative’s health care and support, documents show .
Cory Konold has asked a judge to order the removal of his ankle GPS monitor. It installs fiber for the Internet along roads, homes and businesses.

As a result, he missed days of work and put his job at risk, he said in court documents.
