Abstract: We show that for every $ r \geq 4$ there exists a $ {d_r}$ such that for all $ d \geq {d_r}$ a general set of r points in $ {{\mathbf{P}}^{r - 1}}$ is not a hyperplane section of an arithmetically Cohen-Macaulay local complete intersection curve in $ {{\mathbf{P}}^r}$. Explicit values for the bound $ {d_r}$ are given. In particular, for $ r \geq 12$ we have $ {d_r} = r + 3$, and this bound is exact.
