The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Candy W. Dale Chief United States Magistrate Judge
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
On August 10, 2010, Defendant EDDIE RAY GRAHAM appeared before the undersigned United States Magistrate Judge to enter a change of plea pursuant to a written plea agreement. The Defendant executed a waiver of the right to have the presiding United States District Judge take his change of plea. Thereafter, the Court explained to the Defendant the nature of the charges contained in the applicable Indictment (Dkt. 1), the maximum penalties applicable, his constitutional rights, the impact that the Sentencing Guidelines will have, and that the District Judge will not be bound by the agreement of the parties as to the penalty to be imposed.
The Court, having conducted the change of plea hearing and having inquired of the Defendant, his counsel, and the government, finds that there is a factual basis for the Defendant's guilty plea, that he entered it voluntarily and with full knowledge of the consequences, and that the plea should be accepted.
RECOMMENDATION NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED:
1) The District Court accept Defendant EDDIE RAY GRAHAM's conditional plea of guilty under Rule 11(a)(2) and plea of guilty under rule 11(c)(1)(B) to Count 1 of the Indictment (Dkt. 1),
2) The District Court order that a pre-sentence report be prepared; and
3) The District Court order forfeiture consistent with Defendant EDDIE RAY GRAHAM's admission to the Criminal Forfeiture allegation in the Indictment (Dkt. 1) and the Plea Agreement (Dkt. 28).
Written objections to this Report and Recommendation must be filed within fourteen (14) days pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Rule 72.1(b), or as a result of failing to do so, that party may waive the right to raise factual and/or legal objections to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
