State v. R.K.

New Jersey Appellate Division

April 27, 2020

#CSL #SocialMedia # 1stAmendment #MegansLaw #StrictScrutiny #Overbroad


In what surely is a preview of a New Jersey (maybe even SCOTUS) case, the Appellate Division determined that a provision prohibiting a parolee from accessing social media online as part of a parole provision under Community Supervision for Life violated the 1st Amendment, as the provision was overbroad and did not survive strict scrutiny. In addition to being facially unconstitutional, the provision would be unconstitutional as-applied because this parolee’s crimes did not have any connection with social media or computers.
