UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
STEPHEN LEONARD LEWIS,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sue E. Myerscough, U.S. District Judge
Thursday, 07 June, 2012 10:46:19 AM Clerk, U.S. District Court, ILCD
Defendant has four separate convictions*fn1 in the Northern District of Georgia for Armed Bank Robbery in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a) and (d). Defendant, having already served his concurrent terms of imprisonment, commenced his term of supervised release on June 11, 2010. Defendant's supervised release is scheduled to terminate on June 10, 2015. On April 23, 2012, orders transferring jurisdiction over Defendant's supervised release in all four cases from the Northern District of Georgia to this Court were accepted by this Court.*fn2
On October 19, 2011, Defendant failed a polygraph examination when asked certain questions regarding him viewing pornography. On January 19, 2012, Defendant's two computers were seized and a computer forensic search was conducted. The search resulted in the discovery of 96 images of adult pornography on Defendant's laptop computer.
On May 11, 2012, this Court entered an order modifying the conditions of supervision to include that Defendant participate with the United States Probation Office Computer and Internet Monitoring Program. Defendant had agreed to the modification of the conditions of his release. Defendant now desires that his computers be returned to him. Probation has no objection to Defendant's request, but cannot return the laptop to him while it still contains the images of pornography. Defendant has stated he has no objection to the laptop's hard drive being "wiped" so that his computer may be returned to him.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT the United States Probation Office return Defendant's two computers to Defendant. The laptop computer is not to be returned to Defendant until all images of pornography are removed from that computer.
FOR THE COURT:
SUE E. MYERSCOUGH United States District Judge
