Bedolla-Zarate v Sessions

Bedolla-Zarate sought review of his removal order. The panel denied the petition. It held that there was sufficient evidence that Bedolla-Zarate was convicted of child sex abuse in Wyoming based on the judgment stating he pled guilty to the charge. It held his Wyoming conviction was an aggravated felony because both federal and Wyoming law require knowing violation as to the proscribed acts but not the age of the victim and Bedolla-Zarate offered no support for his contention that generic child sex abuse requires actual abuse as opposed to a victim that is too young and requiring a greater age gap set out by the immigration board would eliminate a majority of state offenses from the generic offense.
