Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today, vacating and remanding
In USA v. Walbert Farmer (SD Ind., Pratt), a 13-page opinion, Jude Tinder writes:
Defendant-Appellant Walbert Keith Farmer appeals the district court’s imposition of two special conditions for his three-year term of supervised release: one prohibiting him from self-employment, and the other requiring him to submit to the search of his person, vehicle, office, residence, and property at the request of his probation officer, even without a warrant or reasonable suspicion. Because we conclude that the special conditions do not bear a reasonably direct relationship to Farmer’s underlying crimes, we vacate the special conditions in question and remand for further consideration.
