US v. Reeves, No. 08-2966

Defendant's child pornography conviction is vacated where a condition of defendant's supervised release that obligated him, upon entry into a "significant romantic relationship," to notify the United States Probation Department and to inform the other party to the relationship of his conviction, was unconstitutionally vague and not reasonably related to the goals of sentencing.
