U.S. v. Craig

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Criminal Court
Case Number: 
No. 12-1262
Decision Date: 
December 18, 2012
Federal District: 
S.D. Ill.
Dist. Ct. did not err in sentencing 46-year-old defendant to 50-year term of incarceration on four counts of production of child pornography that involved repeated sexual assaults of 11-year-old girl over approximate three-year period. Dist. Ct. fashioned sentence by giving defendant statutory maximum 30-year sentence on one count, and then imposing consecutive sentences of 20 years for remaining counts, which was appropriate under sentencing guidelines, even though defendant would be 96 years old at completion of sentence.
