    A Pennsylvania woman is now on probation after her fitness tracker's information proved she was awake and walking around at a time she claimed to have been sexually assaulted.

    The woman made a false police report saying she was pulled out of bed and sexually assaulted, but her Fitbit showed otherwise, according to NBC's "Today" show.

    That evidence "sealed the deal" for prosecutors, Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman told "Today."

    Law enforcement can use a warrant to obtain information from fitness trackers, many of which include GPS devices.
