First Circuit - Supervised Release

United States v. Benoit, 975 F.3d 20 (1st Cir. 2020). In a possession/distribution of child pornography case, it was not an abuse of discretion to impose supervised release conditions prohibiting contact with children, including the defendant’s minor son, and prohibiting the defendant from going to places with children. The defendant had sexually abused his sister when she was four, and while an expert opined that the defendant’s risk of recidivism would be low with treatment, the defendant had not started treatment.
