    UNITED STATES V. D.M. Jack B. Weinstein SENTENCING MEMORANDUM, HEARING AND ORDER JACK B. WEINSTEIN, Senior United States District Judge

    “Indicating that mandatory-minimum sentences for child pornography offenses "will cause serious and unnecessary harm to adolescent defendants by applying a mechanical and unnecessarily harsh sentencing scheme to address the broad range of culpability and circumstances involved in child pornography"”

    4After examining the statute and dictionary definitions of the material term “distribute” the court interprets the statute to require both

    2) active participation in the actual delivery.

    2See, e.g., L. Jill Rettinger, The Relationship between Child Pornography and the commission of Sexual Offenses Against Children: A Review of the Literature 2–4 (2000) (noting limitation of anecdotal studies of convicted offenders); Note, Inequitable Sentencing for Possession of Child Pornography: A Failure to Distinguish Voyeurs from Pederasts, 61 Hastings L.J. 1282, 1294–98 (2010) (discussing methodological flaws of both types of studies); see also, e.g. United States v. Johnson, 588 F.Supp.2d 997 (S.D.Iowa 2008) (systematically dismantling Butner Study); Taylor & Quayle, supra, at 26–27 (describing Lanning Report 1st ed. (1992) as “lacking empirical validation”); see also, e.g., Julian Sher & Benedict Carey, Debate on Child Pornography's Link to Molesting, N.Y. Times, July 19, 2007, http:// www. nytimes. com/ 2007/ 07/ 19/ us/ 19 sex. html (noting controversy surrounding Butner Study).
