A person loses their right to privacy when a judge issues a search warrant or a warrant for someone's arrest; to do this, the judge requires proof
that this person may possibly be wanted for a crime.
However, if a person is convicted of a crime in court, then they lose many rights -- including the right to travel freely, be secure in persons &
papers, assemble with others, and even vote. However, they retain the rights to life and humane treatment at all times (unless they're the special
case of being on Death Row, in which case even the life part gets revoked at the end).
There is nothing unconstitutional about this; the U.S. Constitution says that a person's rights can only be removed through "due process" (through
a legal trial that is fair & open, with a jury of one's peers; but once convicted of a crime, all rights except the one to humane treatment are on
the table to be taken away)...
