Eighth Circuit - Sex Offenses

United States v. Barthman, 983 F.3d 318 (8th Cir. 2020). The court clearly erred in finding that the defendant was non-indigent for purposes of imposing a $5,000 special assessment under the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act. The defendant had “a negative net worth of $166,903” and “will be nearly 80 years old, if not older, when he is released from custody.”
