Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Conviction for knowingly attempting to transfer obscene material to a person under the age of sixteen and knowingly attempting to induce a child to engage in criminal sexual activities is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in finding that defendant was not entrapped as a matter of law, as a reasonable jury could have concluded that, even if induced, defendant was predisposed to violate the law; 2) there was sufficient evidence to support defendant's conviction for enticing a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity, as a reasonable jury could have found he knew he was in a romance chat room and believed he was communicating with a fourteen-year-old girl, and thus intended to entice a minor to engage in illegal sex; and 3) the court did not err in admitting transcript of internet chats.
