United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit.

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Jomo K. HILL, Defendant-Appellant.

No. 18-3164

Decided: October 16, 2019

Before WILLIAM J. BAUER, Circuit Judge, KENNETH F. RIPPLE, Circuit Judge, DAVID F. HAMILTON, Circuit Judge Elizabeth M. Monfils, Attorney, Benjamin W. Proctor, Attorney, Rebecca Taibleson, Attorney, Office of the United States Attorney, Milwaukee, WI, for Thomas W. Patton, Attorney, Office of the Federal Public Defender, Peoria, IL, Colleen McNichols Ramais, Attorney, Office of the Federal Public Defender, Urbana, IL, for Defendant - Appellant


Jomo K. Hill pleaded guilty to robbery and brandishing a firearm. Before his sentencing hearing, the district court circulated a list of proposed conditions of supervision. At the hearing, the district court pronounced his sentence and incorporated those conditions by reference. On appeal, Hill initially argued that the district court procedurally erred by incorporating the circulated list of conditions without adding it to the record. After his opening brief, however, the district court supplemented the record with that list, curing any procedural defect. This appeal is therefore moot. We decline the defendant’s invitation to issue an advisory order to clarify the proper procedure for incorporating conditions.
