A federal appeals court has ordered that the sentencing of Brandon Lifshitz, who was convicted of transmitting child pornography, be evaluated for potential abuses of privacy. Under the sentencing, Lifshitz's computer must be equipped with computer monitoring and filtering software to ensure that Lifshitz does not access child pornography on his home computer during his probation. The court ordered the review to evaluate the sentence's possible violation of the Fourth Amendment. (U.S. v. Lifshitz, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, No. 03-1221, 2004)
