United States v. Garcia, No. 16-2046 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
The First Circuit affirmed the district court’s imposition of supervised release conditions upon Defendant after the court vacated his original sentence under Jonson v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015). On appeal, Defendant focused on the conditions requiring him to comply with a sex offender evaluation and restricting his contact with individuals under the age of eighteen. The First Circuit held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in imposing the supervised release conditions because they were grounded in Defendant’s criminal history, as well as in the goals of public protection and rehabilitation.
