US v. Hilger, No. 12-30192 (8-26-13)(McKeown with Ikuta and Carney, D.J.).

In affirming a supervised release violation, the 9th holds that a defendant's uncorroborated confession suffices. The Opper rule, which requires some other corroboration, only applies to guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. SR has a much lower standard of proof.
