United States v. Malenya, 736 F.3d 554 (D.C. Cir. 2013)
Nature of Case: Appeal of conditions of federal supervised release, to wit, condition that prohibited defendant from possessing or using a computer or access to any online service without prior approval of USPO, and installation of monitoring software.
Holding: Conditions of supervised release imposed on defendant, who had sought to seek a sexual relationship with an adult, though wound up engaging in sexual activity with a minor, were greater deprivation of liberty than necessary to achieve statutory objectives. Furthermore, the district court applied the incorrect standard regarding supervised release conditions. Vacated and remanded for imposition of special conditions of supervised release.
