US v. Mills, 15-4325

Sentence for guilty plea to manufacturing child pornography in violation of 18 U.S.C. sections 2251(a) and (d), is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in concluding that taking indecent liberties with children constitutes a state crime 'relating to the sexual exploitation of children' pursuant to 18 U.S.C. section 2251(e); and 2) given the egregious nature of his past and continuing offenses against children, even if defendant had been sentenced based on a one prior offense enhancement, the district court would have likely imposed the same sentence, thus defendant's sentence did not affect his substantial rights..
