US v. Larsen, 14-30244

Convictions for production and possession of child pornography in violation of 18 U.S.C. sections 2251(a) and 2252A are affirmed where: 1) the government sufficiently established that the defendant, a 45-year-old man, 'used' a 16-year-old girl, to produce sexually explicit images, as required for a conviction under section 2251(a); 2) sections 2251 and 2252A are not unconstitutionally vague and overbroad, do not violate the Tenth Amendment, nor exceed Congress' power under the Commerce Clause.
