Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's child pornography conviction is affirmed where: 1) defendant's own testimony supplied the allegedly "missing" element of whether he actually photographed one victim; 2) the district court's preclusion of a reasonable-mistake-of-age defense did not violate defendant's right to due process; and 3) sufficient evidence existed from which a jury could find that defendant produced child pornography with materials that had traveled in interstate commerce.
