CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the District Court properly imposed the special condition of supervised release of no contact with girlfriend?
Defendant argued that the District Court erred when it imposed the special condition of supervised release of no contact with his girlfriend. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that there was no error because the defendant committed the Iowa offense of domestic assault, of his history of violence against women, his recidivism and attempts to influence his girlfriend’s testimony, and the underlying incident, which involved him choking his pregnant girlfriend until she almost lost consciousness. Affirmed.
