State v. Hotchkiss, No. 2020 MT 269 (Mont. 2020)
Nature of Case: Appellant was convicted of a sex offense not involving the internet and the trial court imposed several conditions of supervision restricting his access to the internet. Appellant objected to these conditions and the trial court imposed them over his objection. Appellant thereafter sought review.
Holding: The Montana Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the trial court. The Court found that, while conditions relating to monitoring of Appellant’s internet usage were reasonable, conditions that restricted his internet access were overbroad considering the facts of his case.
