CASE ENTRY

United States v. Hernandez

Among other misdeeds, Las Vegas softball coach takes explicit photos of himself with 17-year-old player. Distribution of child porn? Coach: No, I never shared the photos with anyone other than the player. Ninth Circuit: That’s still distribution. But it seems the district court increased your sentence because you opted for a trial, so (over a dissent) resentencing is in order.
