CASE ENTRY

United States v. Holena

Pennsylvania man serves 10-year sentence for using internet to entice minor (actually an undercover officer). Some conditions of his supervised release: the installation of filtering and monitoring software on his computer and also, confusingly, a lifetime ban on computer and internet use. Third Circuit: He “cannot follow these conditions because he cannot tell what they forbid.” Which violates due process. Further, a lifetime ban is more restrictive than necessary. Vacated and remanded.
