Here are some terms of his probation. There were twenty-six in all.

1. No contact with victims.

2. Must abide by the law.

3. He can't be in possession of any guns or weapons.

4. Must be employed.

5. No substance use including alcohol.

6. He cannot associate with known felons.

7. He cannot use surveillance equipment.

8. Cobb must inform law enforcement of change of address/employment.

9. His residence, car, computer may be searched at any time.

10. GPS monitoring.
