US v. Lapsins, No. 07-4387

By FindLaw Staff on July 07, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's child pornography conviction and sentence are affirmed, where 1) the affidavit in support of the search of Defendant's home provided probable cause to believe that the images at issue included real children; and 2) the government may decline to move for a reduction in a defendant's sentence under U.S.S.G. section 3E1.1(b), so long as the decision does not rest on a constitutionally impermissible factor and is not arbitrary.
