US v. Orr, 08-2267

Conviction of defendant for attempting to persuade or induce a minor to travel in interstate commerce to engage in sexual activity and using a facility of interstate commerce to do so, arising from online communications with an undercover police officer, is affirmed as any attempt by defendant to assert entrapment during trial would have been futile because it is well settled that, absent extraordinary promises, making a defendant a criminal offer does not constitute government inducement, and all factors indicate that defendant was predisposed to commit the charged offense.
