Sixth Circuit -- USA v. Timothy Sims

Error in exclusion of evidence from pr0n case, as the deft could have taken the requisite substantial step without actually meeting all of the statutory elements.

Dissent, no abuse of discretion, as court just made the call on the evidence at the pretrial stage.

USA v. Timothy Sims 
Compiled by D.E. Frydrychowski, who is, not incidentally, not giving you legal advice.
