US v. Shafer, No. 07-2574

By FindLaw Staff on July 21, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's child pornography sentence is affirmed where "sexual contact," as defined by 18 U.S.C. section 2246(3), includes self-masturbation, as long as the other requirements of the statute are satisfied, and thus defendant qualified for a sentence enhancement under U.S.S.G. section 2G2.1(b)(2)(A).
