US v. Studabaker, No. 08-1614

By FindLaw Staff on August 24, 2009 4:18 PM

Defendant's conviction and sentence for causing the foreign travel of a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity are affirmed where: 1) his prosecution did not violate the Double Jeopardy Clause; 2) defendant did not reserve the right to appeal the sufficiency of the evidence, and thus waived his argument that the government did not provide a sufficient factual basis to support his plea; and 3) the district court did not abuse its discretion when it rejected defendant's argument that his sentence should be reduced to account for his prior incarceration.
