Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Child Pornography Convictions Affirmed
In US v. Wayerski, No. 09-11379, the court affirmed in part defendants' convictions and sentences for engaging in multiple child-pornography offenses, holding that the statute of conviction for engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, 18 U.S.C. section 2252A(g), was not unconstitutionally vague.
As the court wrote: "In this consolidated appeal, Erik Wayerski, Raymond Roy, John Mosman, and Stepan Bondarenko appeal their convictions and sentences for engaging in multiple child-pornography offenses. All four co-defendants were convicted of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2252A(g); conspiring to advertise, transport, receive, and possess child pornography and to obstruct justice, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 371, 1512(k), 2251(d)(1) and (e), and 2252A(a)(1) and (b)(1); and advertising the exchange of child pornography, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2251(d)(1)."
