US v. Johnson, 11-30256

In a conviction of a defendant for firearm possession, district court's imposition of a five-year term of supervised release and an order that defendant undergo a sexual offender assessment as an additional condition of his supervised release based on a two decades-old prior sexual offense conviction, is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in ordering the sexual offender assessment condition as he was twice convicted of serious and violent sexual offenses, and his current offense involved possession of a same sort of weapon he used as a sexual offender; and 2) defendant's constitutional challenge to the sexual offender assessment with a polygraph exam is not ripe.
