In US v. Berg, 2011 U.S. App. LEXIS 6816 (7th Cir. April 5, 2011), the Court reviewed the conviction and 10-year imprisonment term of Berg for attempting to entice a minor into sexual activity in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2422(b). The 7th Circuit affirmed, and supported its analysis by, inter alia, a cite to a law review article of a UABA member:
See Andriy Pazuniak, A Better Way to Stop Online Predators: Encouraging a More Appealing Approach to § 2422(b), 40 Seton Hall L. Rev. 691, 704 (2010) (Section "2422(b) does not require a defendant to demonstrate an intent to actually engage in illegal sexual activity with a minor. Rather, a defendant violates § 2422(b) by merely attempting to persuade a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity.").
