U.S. v. Garner (9th Cir. - June 18, 2007)

James Garner is an elderly man. (No, not that James Garner.) He orders a couple of videos of kiddie porn and has some more kiddie porn on his computer. Nothing violent; but, obviously, he has a serious pedophilia problem. What's the appropriate sentence for his kiddie porn offenses?

22 years. So he dies in prison. And the Ninth Circuit affirms.
