Where a defendant in a child-pornography case challenged the admission of evidence found on his phone, the search warrant application established probable cause to believe that evidence would be found on the defendant’s electronic devices inside his home, including his phone, and the $27,000 restitution order for nine victims did not violate the constitutional prohibition on excessive fines.
Judgment is affirmed.
