8 hotfudgefries Having no access at all to a computer is a rare case. Most cases, felons are not permitted to have any *unsupervised* access to computers or internet. This is checked on and enforced by a parole officer, and is only enforceable for the period of parole or probation as defined by the court judgement. They are allowed to use a computer at work, as long as the employer can monitor and provide logs to law enforcement as needed. Same for public library access. Access has to be login restricted and browsing history and usage has to be logged and reported. A personal home computer or smartphone is a no go. An exception might be made for a computer at home, so long as the parole officer or other law enforcement is satisfied that it cannot connect to the internet and it can and will be taken at any time for a forensic inspection.
