PROPOSED REVISIONS TO THE SEVENTH CIRCUIT CRIMINAL JURY INSTRUCTIONS

The Seventh Circuit Pattern Criminal Jury Instructions Committee submits the attached proposed revised criminal pattern jury instruction for 18 U.S.C. § 2250(a) for public comment. The current instruction is inaccurate in light of the Supreme Court’s opinion in Nichols v. United States, 136 S. Ct. 1113 (2016). The proposed revised version of the instruction is redlined to reflect the proposed changes.
