United States v. Tullie, No. 19–10001 (9th Cir. 2020)
Nature of Case: Appellant was convicted of a sex offense and appealed several conditions that were imposed by the district court as a condition of supervised release, including conditions that delegated treatment decisions to the probation office and conditions that restricted him from employment in any field with the potential for there to be contact with children.
Holding: 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed in part and vacated in part. While the condition delegating treatment decisions to the probation office was in error, the Court could not conclude that the condition of treatment would not have been imposed had the error not occurred. The Court did vacate and remand on the condition that the Appellant not have employment where there was a potential to have contact with children, as it was overly broad and restricted a broader range of behavior than that which was necessary to meet the goals of supervised release.
