US v. McCarron, No. 20-10072 (4-18-22)(O’Scannlain w/Miller & Lee). Affirming an enticement case under 18 USC 2422, the opinion goes through each element, in the light most favorable to the gov’t, to show there is sufficient evidence to support conviction. The interesting issue is that proposed “hypothetical” lurid meetings will achieve “the mental state of assent” with a minor rather than an actual attempt to engage in sexual conduct with a minor.
