By FindLaw Staff on January 20, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In federal government's attempt to commit a defendant under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, district court's holding that the government failed to make the necessary showing is affirmed in part, reversed in part and remanded where: 1) district court's determination that the statute is not facially unconstitutional is affirmed; and 2) the district court erred in holding that the government failed to establish that defendant met the mental condition element.
