US v. Resendiz-Ponce, 05-998

The Ninth Circuit's reversal of respondent's conviction for illegally attempting to reenter the U.S. is reversed where the indictment at issue was not defective, and consequently, the Supreme Court did not need to answer the question of whether the omission of an element of a criminal offense from a federal indictment can constitute harmless error.
