US v. Wright, No. 08-10525

By FindLaw Staff on November 04, 2010 1:50 PM

Child Pornography Conviction Reversed in Part

In US v. Wright, No. 08-10525, the court affirmed in part defendant's conviction and sentence for the transportation and possession of child pornography, holding that any additional evidence concerning defendant's alibi would have been merely cumulative.  However, the court reversed in part where 1) at the time of defendant's offense, 18 U.S.C. section 2252A(a)(1) required the government to prove that the child pornography images actually crossed state lines; and 2) the district court needed to make essential factual findings explaining the basis for its decision to deny defendant's suppression motion.

As the court wrote:  "Defendant-Appellant Jason Wright appeals his conviction and sentence for the transportation and possession of child pornography in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2252A(a)(1), (a)(5)(B). Wright raises numerous issues of alleged error. First, he challenges his conviction based on insufficiency of the evidence."
