United States v. Grauer, No. 11-3852 (8th Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Defendant was convicted of attempted enticement of a minor to engage in illicit sexual activity and possession of child pornography. Defendant appealed his conviction and sentence. The court affirmed and held that there was no prosecutorial misconduct in cross examining a defense expert and in rebuttal closing argument that deprived him of a fair trial; there was sufficient evidence to convict him of possessing child pornography; and there was no error in calculating the advisory guidelines range for the attempted enticement count, namely, imposing the two-level enhancement for misrepresenting his identity authorized in U.S.S.G. 2G1.3(B)(2).
