US v. Matta, 13‐4078-cr

In this case, defendant was sentenced to a 24-month term of imprisonment to be followed by 12 months of supervised release, and the district court included as special conditions of the supervised release four months in a residential reentry center and participation in a drug treatment or detoxification program. The district court left it to the discretion of the federal Probation Department to decide whether defendant would be required to participate in an inpatient or outpatient drug treatment program. The sentence is vacated and remanded as to the challenged condition of supervised release, and affirmed in all other respects, where the district court's delegation of the decision to place defendant in an inpatient or outpatient drug treatment program to the Probation Department was improper.
