x WITH COUNSEL Joel Koury, DFPD
GUILTY, and the court being satisfied that there is a factual basis for the plea.
NOLO CONTENDERE X NOT GUILTY
There being a finding/verdict of x GUILTY, defendant has been convicted as charged of the offense(s) of:
18 USC § 1341: Mail Fraud as charged in counts one through fifteen, inclusive, of the Indictment.
The Court asked whether defendant had anything to say why judgment should not be pronounced. Because no sufficient cause to the contrary was shown, or appeared to the Court, the Court adjudged the defendant guilty as charged and convicted and ordered that: Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant is hereby committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of:
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $1,500, which is due
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $45,464 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §
Defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $45,464 to victims as set forth in a separate victim list prepared by the probation office which this Court adopts and which reflects the Court's determination of the amount of restitution due to each victim. The victim list, which shall be forwarded to the fiscal section of the clerk's office, shall remain confidential to protect the privacy interests of the victims.
If the defendant makes a partial payment, each payee shall receive approximately proportional payment unless another priority order or percentage payment is specified in this judgment.
Restitution shall be due during the period of imprisonment, at the rate of not less than $25 per quarter, and pursuant to the Bureau of Prisons' Inmate Financial Responsibility Program. If any amount of the restitution remains unpaid after release from custody, nominal monthly payments of at least $25 shall be made during the period of supervised release. These payments shall begin 30 days after the commencement of supervision. Nominal restitution payments are ordered as the court finds that the defendant's economic circumstances do not allow for either immediate or future payment of the amount ordered.
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3612(f)(3)(A), interest on the restitution ordered is waived because the defendant does not have the ability to pay interest. Payments may be subject to penalties for default and delinquency pursuant
The defendant shall comply with General Order No. 01-05.
All fines are waived as it is found that the defendant does not have the ability to pay a fine in addition to restitution. In addition, such sanction would place an undue burden on the defendant's dependents.
Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant, Kim Pounds, is hereby committed on Counts 1 through 15 of the 15-Count Indictment to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of 12 months and 1 day. This term consists of 12 months and one day on each of Counts 1 through 15 of the Indictment to be served concurrently.
Upon release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of five years, consisting of three years on each of Counts 1 through 11, and five years on each of Counts 12 through 15, all such terms to run concurrently under the following terms and conditions:
The defendant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the U. S. Probation Office and General Order 318;
The defendant shall not commit any violation of local, state or federal law or ordinance.
The defendant shall refrain from any unlawful use of a controlled substance. The defendant shall submit to one drug test within 15 days of release from imprisonment and at least two periodic drug tests thereafter, not to exceed eight tests per month, as directed by the Probation Officer;
The defendant shall participate in an outpatient substance abuse treatment and counseling program that includes urinalysis, breath, and/or sweat patch testing, as directed by the Probation Officer. The defendant shall abstain from using illicit drugs and alcohol, and abusing prescription medications during the period of supervision;
During the course of supervision, the Probation Officer, with the agreement of the defendant and defense counsel, may place the defendant in a residential drug treatment program approved by the United States Probation Office for treatment of narcotic addiction or drug dependency, which may include counseling and testing, to determine if the defendant has reverted to the use of drugs, and the ...
