US v. Hernandez, 14-50214

Conviction for transportation of firearms into his state of residence in violation of 18 U.S.C. section 922(a)(3) is reversed where, although the prohibition on the transportation of guns in section 922(a)(3) is not subject to the heightened willfulness requirement used in some tax and structuring laws, there is a substantial likelihood that the defendant was convicted for the act of transporting guns with the intent to commit a later crime rather than the one with which he was charged.
