Tenth Circuit rejects challenge to polygraph testing as part of supervised release
The Tenth Circuit has a notable little decision about supervised release in US v. Begay, No. 10-2068 (10th Cir. Feb. 7, 2011) (available here), which starts this way:
Defendant/Appellant Toby Begay, a convicted sex offender, appeals the district court’s modification of the conditions of his supervised release to include clinical polygraph testing. Title 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(2) sets forth the conditions and procedures under which a district court may modify conditions of supervised release. Begay argues that a district court does not have authority to modify conditions of supervised release pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(2) unless the government can justify the modification by showing that circumstances have changed since the original sentencing. He also argues that clinical polygraph testing is not a valid special condition of supervised release in his case. Exercising jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, we affirm.
