United States Supreme Court

Lockhart v. US, 14-8358

In a case in which defendant pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography, 18 U.S.C. section 2252(a)(4), and because defendant had a prior state-court conviction for first-degree sexual abuse involving his adult girlfriend, his presentence report concluded that he was subject to the 10-year mandatory minimum sentence enhancement provided in section 2252(b)(2), triggered by prior state convictions for crimes "relating to aggravated sexual abuse, sexual abuse, or abusive sexual conduct involving a minor or ward," the Second Circuit's decision upholding the District Court's application of the mandatory minimum sentence is affirmed where defendant's prior conviction is encompassed by section 2252(b)(2).
