Case Number: 
No. 12-1539
Decision Date: 
January 31, 2013
Federal District: 
N.D. Ill., E. Div.
Record contained sufficient evidence to support entry of defendant’s guilty plea to charge of interstate transportation of child pornography where defendant indicated during plea colloquy that: (1) he downloaded child pornography onto laptop; and (2) he knew laptop contained child pornography at time he crossed Canadian border and knew that laptop was with him at time he crossed border. Ct. rejected defendant’s claim that charged offense required proof that he knew that transportation of laptop containing child pornography constituted violation of law.
