US v. Watson, No. 08-10385

By FindLaw Staff on September 23, 2009 4:28 PM

In an appeal challenging a condition of defendant's supervised release barring him from entering San Francisco without the prior approval of his probation officer, the appeal is dismissed where: 1) the condition was reasonably tied to the court's stated aims of rehabilitation and deterrence and was no more restrictive than reasonably necessary to serve those purposes; and 2) the language of defendant's plea agreement waiver encompassed the appeal, and the waiver was knowingly and voluntarily made given the circumstances surrounding the agreement.
