United States v. Glenn, No. 13-231 (2d Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed an order revoking his supervised release. The district court concluded that defendant committed "another federal, state or local offense" in violation of the conditions of his supervised release, based solely on his pleas of guilty to a state drug offense entered under the Alford doctrine. The court concluded that the district court did not abuse its discretion in concluding, by a preponderance of the evidence, that defendant committed another offense in violation of the conditions of his supervised release because an Alford plea, under Connecticut law, constituted an acknowledgement of the strength of the state's evidence. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment of the district court.
