Tenth Circuit affirms sex offender conditions in sentencing for bank thefft

The Tenth Circuit's ruling today in US v. Hahn, No. 07-5117 (10th Cir. Dec. 18, 2008) (available here), might be filed under the heading "bad defendants make bad law."  Hahn involves a defendant who pilfered $20 bills as an ATM techncian and then pleaded guilty to violating 18 U.S.C. § 656, the misapplication of financial institution funds. He "was sentenced to eighteen months incarceration followed by a five-year term of supervised release ... [which included] standard conditions of supervised release as well as several additional ones including special sex offender conditions."  

To understand why these special sex offender conditions were imposed and affirmed, you'll have to read the decision in Hahn, which actually covers a lot of notable supervised release law.  (Alternatively, folks can just make crude remarks about sex and $20 bills in the comments.)
