Amendment: Section 2G3.1(b)(2) is amended by deleting "sadomasochistic" and inserting in lieu thereof "sadistic or masochistic".
Section 2G3.1(c) is amended by deleting:
"(1) If the offense involved a criminal enterprise, apply the appropriate guideline from Chapter Two, Part E (Offenses Involving Criminal Enterprises and Racketeering) if the resulting offense level is greater than that determined above.",
and inserting in lieu thereof:
"(1) If the offense involved transporting, distributing, receiving, possessing, or advertising to receive material involving the sexual exploitation of a minor, apply §2G2.2 (Transporting, Receiving, or Trafficking in Material Involving the Sexual Exploitation of a Minor).".
Reason for Amendment: This amendment inserts a cross reference to §2G2.2 for offenses involving materials which, in fact, depict children to ensure that the penalties for such offenses adequately reflect their seriousness. The current cross reference at subsection (c)(1) is deleted. In addition, the amendment conforms the terminology of specific offense characteristic (b)(2) to that used in other offense guidelines.
Effective Date: The effective date of this amendment is November 1, 1990.
