United States v. Sheppard

3rd Circuit

November 3, 2021

This case revolved around a love triangle between a probationer, his girlfriend, and a probation officer. During the first year of his supervision, the defendant learned that his girlfriend and probation officer were in a “personal relationship.” He then moved for early termination of his supervised release. The District Court denied relief and the Third Circuit affirmed. In doing so, the Third Circuit recognized the improper nature of the probation officer’s conduct and emphasized that the District Court should not have considered the possible effects of the probation officer’s misconduct on the defendant’s rehabilitation.
