Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides case involving Indiana

In U.S. v. Worden (ND Ind., Van Bokkelen), a 10-page opinion, Judge Lefkow (sitting by designation) writes:

Nathaniel Josiah Worden pleaded guilty to one count of advertising child pornography, a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2251(d)(1). In a plea agreement, Worden agreed to a comprehensive waiver of appellate rights. Worden now challenges the district court’s order of approximately half a million dollars in restitution to one of the victims of his offense. Because we conclude that the restitution order falls within the scope of the appellate waiver in Worden’s plea agreement, his appeal must be dismissed.
