United States v. Sorenson, No. 19-3720 (8th Cir. 2021)
Nature of Case: Appellant was convicted of federal failure to register as a sex offender and sentenced to a term of imprisonment, plus supervised release. He subsequently was released and violated his supervised release, and in response the trial court revoked his release and imposed several additional conditions of release that Appellant objected to including a requirement that he attend treatment, refrain from possessing pornography, allow searches of his electronic media, and others. Appellant appealed the imposition of the special conditions.
Holding: 8th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the imposition of the special conditions, finding that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in imposing them in light of Appellant’s background.
