US v. Johnson, 06-3968

Conviction and sentence for production of child pornography are affirmed over defendant's arguments that: 1) his consent to a search that uncovered evidence was involuntary; 2) his waiver of his Miranda rights was involuntary; and 3) the district court violated his Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights by imposing the mandatory minimum life sentence because the underlying fact of a prior conviction had not been charged in the indictment or proven beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury.
