Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's conviction of defendant for transporting child pornography and sentence to 180 months' imprisonment followed by a lifetime term of supervised release is affirmed in part and reversed in part where: 1) district court's imposition of an unconditional lifetime ban on Internet access is vacated as the ban involved a greater deprivation of liberty than is reasonably necessary; 2) district court did not commit plain error in imposing defendant's mental health condition of supervised release; and 3) defendant's "no minors" condition is vacated as it is an impermissible delegation of authority to the Probation Office and thus constitutes plain error.
