United States v. Donk, 961 F.3d 314 (4th Cir. 2020)
Nature of Case: Appellant was on supervised release for a sex offense and violated the conditions of his release. The district court sentenced him to an additional period of imprisonment along with additional supervised release and a condition that he not possess any sexually arousing material. Appellant challenged this condition as the court impermissibly delegating its duties to a third party, and that the condition was unconstitutionally vague.
Holding: 4th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s imposition of the condition on the grounds that it was based on an individualized assessment, and was to be enforced in a way that nullified any vagueness concerns. The Court further held that it was not an impermissible delegation by the district court.
