People v. Rodriguez

The computer generated report of GPS data was not a statement by a person, and was therefore not hearsay.

Defendant was convicted of leaving the county without permission, and challenged the admission of a report of GPS data transmitted by his electronic ankle monitor. The computer generated report of the GPS data generated by the ankle monitor was not a statement of a person as defined by the Evidence Code, and therefore did not constitute hearsay evidence.
