United States v. Goluba, No. 10-11301 (5th Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Defendant was indicted and pleaded guilty, without a written plea agreement, to receipt of child pornography. Defendant appealed his sentence, arguing that he was entitled to a two-level reduction under U.S.S.G. 2G2.2(b)(1) because he distributed no material involving the exploitation of a minor. Because the district court did not err by declining to apply the two-level reduction where defendant's conduct was not limited to that of a mere viewer of child pornography, nor was his conduct casual or isolated, the court affirmed the sentence.
