Significant romantic relationship. The Second Circuit vacated a condition of supervise release that required the defendant to inform the Probation Department if he entered into a significant romantic relationship and to inform the other party in the relationship of his conviction for possession of child pornography. The Court held that the condition was too vague and not reasonably related to sentencing objectives in that there was nothing in the record suggesting that he had been a threat to a romantic partner. The Court also found that the condition effected an unnecessary deprivation of liberty.
