CHAPTER 5 - PART K - DEPARTURES
§5K2.19. Post-Sentencing Rehabilitative Efforts (Policy Statement)
Post-sentencing rehabilitative efforts, even if exceptional, undertaken by a defendant after imposition of a term of imprisonment for the instant offense are not an appropriate basis for a downward departure when resentencing the defendant for that offense. (Such efforts may provide a basis for early termination of supervised release under 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(1).)
Historical Note: Effective November 1, 2000 (see Appendix C, amendment 602).
