ABSTRACT
The article presents information on U.S. Supreme Court Johnson v. United States, case number 99-5153, argued on February 22, 2000 and decided on May 15, 2000. The petitioner was granted a supervised release in 1995, but violated two conditions of his release which prompted the District Court to order him to serve a prison term then additional supervised release. The petitioner appealed under a provision of the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 which did not give the district courts power to order a new supervised release term.
