United States v. Malone, 937 F.3d 1325 (10th Cir. Sept. 11, 2019)

Sep 11, 2019

The district court imposed a stock condition of supervised release requiring the defendant to “take prescribed medications as directed” by his mental health providers. On appeal, the Tenth Circuit held that imposition of a blanket medication requirement without particularized findings was plain error, which warranted reversal.  On remand, the district court was instructed to strike the offending language without a resentencing.
