USA v Mattix

9-17-2012 Oregon:

USA v Mattix
(694 F.3d 1082 (2012)

Kenneth Theodore Mattix appeals his conviction for failure to register as a sex offender in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2250(a). We affirm the conviction and clarify that the outcome of this case is controlled by United States v. Valverde, 628 F.3d 1159 (9th Cir. 2010).

For the foregoing reasons, we AFFIRM the district court's denial of Mattix's motion to dismiss the indictment and AFFIRM Mattix's conviction. The judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED.
