United States v. Wiltshire, No. 13-3590 (2d Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendant pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute Adderall. On appeal, defendant challenged the district court's judgment convicting defendant of violating her supervised release by making false statements to a probation officer and leaving the district of her supervision without permission. During the pendency of her appeal, defendant completed her time in custody on the contested adjudication, although her term of supervision had not run. The court concluded that defendant's appeal was not mooted by the expiration of her custodial sentence and that the possibility of a reduced term of supervised release can satisfy Article III's case-or-controversy requirement. On the merits, the court concluded that the district court's conclusion that defendant's violation was willful was not an abuse of discretion. Defendant's remaining arguments are without merit. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
