A lifetime ban on Internet and pornography is not unreasonable punishment for a man caught sharing child pornography, the Eleventh Circuit ruled on Wednesday. In 2013, Glen Sterling Carpenter was caught downloading and possessing child pornography. He was sentenced to eight years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release.
That release included two special conditions: Carpenter may never again possess a device capable of connecting to the Internet and he many never posses any sexually explicit material whatsoever. On appeal, the Eleventh Circuit upheld his punishment, finding nothing unreasonable about it.
