The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit recently ruled that the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio properly sentenced Joshua Jamerson after he pleaded guilty, without an agreement in place, to receipt of child pornography.

Jamerson was charged on June 9, 2011 with one count of knowingly receiving visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct via computer on three separate dates.

Jamerson entered a guilty plea and, prior to sentencing, underwent a psychiatric evaluation.
