United States v. Browder, No. 16-1322 (2d Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
After defendant was convicted of possessing digital images and videos of child pornography, he violated two conditions of his supervised release. In regard to the computer monitoring condition, the Second Circuit held that the condition, as construed for purposes of this appeal and under the court's deferential standard, was reasonable. In regard to the mental health treatment condition, the court held that it was reasonable for defendant to object to signing a treatment agreement that conflicted with his actual sentence, and he did not appear, based on the record, to have otherwise acted unreasonably with respect to participating in such treatment. Accordingly, the court affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded.
