State v. Johnson, No. 98493-0 (Wash. 2021)
Nature of Case: Appellant was convicted of sex offenses and required, as a condition of his eventual supervision once released from prison, that all his internet use be pre-approved by his supervision officer. The trial court overruled his objections on First Amendment grounds and the Court of Appeals affirmed. He then sought review from the state supreme court.
Holding: The Washington State Supreme Court affirmed, finding that the challenged condition was not overbroad and did not infringe on Appellant’s First Amendment rights when considered against the facts of his conviction.
