United States v. Clogston, No. 10-2244 (1st Cir. 2011)Annotate this Case
Defendant pled guilty to possession of child pornography, 18 U.S.C. 2252A(a)(5)(B). Calculation of his criminal history, with upward adjustments because of use of a computer, the number of images, images depicting violence, and images of pre-pubescent children, resulted in a guidelines range of 87 to 108 months. The district court rejected an argument that the guidelines were too punitive and imposed a sentence of 90 months. The First Circuit affirmed, noting that the district court examined all the relevant factors and that the sentence was reasonable.
