US v. Engle, 10-4850

In a prosecution that included counts for sexual exploitation of a minor and attempted enticement of a minor, the convictions and sentence are affirmed, where: 1) venue for the count alleging sexual exploitation of a minor was proper under 18 USC 3237(a); 2) the evidence was sufficient to show that the defendant took a substantial step as required for the crime of attempted enticement; and 3) the district court did not deny the defendant the right of a meaningful allocution before pronouncing sentence.
