US v. Hasan, No. 08-4921

By FindLaw Staff on November 11, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's conviction and sentence for making a false statement on a passport application is affirmed where: 1) 18 U.S.C. section 1542 does not require that the false statement on a passport application be "material"; and 2) the district court did not err in imposing an enhancement for obstruction of justice where defendant's abduction of his children prevented proper legal proceedings from occurring by taking matters completely outside the purview of the administration of justice.
