In an appeal from the district court's order revoking defendant's supervised release and imposing additional conditions on her release, the order is vacated in part where: 1) the restriction on associating with persons with misdemeanor convictions was not reasonably related to the risk that defendant would reoffend; and 2) there was insufficient evidence that repeatedly incarcerating defendant for desiring to maintain a relationship with her "life partner" would best serve the interests of rehabilitation or deterrence, or would afford greater protection to the public.
