Amendment: Section 2G1.1(c)(1) is amended by deleting "involves" and inserting in lieu thereof "involved".
The Commentary to §2G1.1 captioned "Application Notes" is amended in Note 3 by inserting at the end:
"This factor would apply, for example, where the ability of the person being transported to appraise or control conduct was substantially impaired by drugs or alcohol. In the case of transportation involving an adult, rather than a minor, this characteristic generally will not apply where the alcohol or drug was voluntarily taken.".
The Commentary to §2G1.1 captioned "Application Notes" is amended in Note 5 by deleting ", distinct offense, even if several persons are transported in a single act" and inserting in lieu thereof:
"victim. Consequently, multiple counts involving the transportation of different persons are not to be grouped together under §3D1.2 (Groups of Closely-Related Counts). Special instruction (c)(1) directs that if the relevant conduct of an offense of conviction includes more than one person being transported, whether specifically cited in the count of conviction or not, each such person shall be treated as if contained in a separate count of conviction".
Reason for Amendment: This amendment clarifies the application of this guideline and corrects a clerical error.
Effective Date: The effective date of this amendment is November 1, 1990.
