Federal Crime of Violence
Section 373 encompasses only solicitations of Federal
felonies. See S. Rep. No. 98-225, 98th Cong., 2d Sess.
308 (1984), reprinted in 1984 U.S. Code Cong. & Adm. News
3182, 3487 (stating that the solicitation statute "is designed to
proscribe the offense of solicitation to commit a Federal crime
of violence"); United States v. Korab, 893 F.2d 212, 215
(9th Cir. 1989). It is not necessary to prove that the Federal
crime of violence was committed, but rather that the defendant
intended that acts constituting a Federal offense result.
