JUDGMENT AND PROBATION/COMMITMENT ORDER

MONTH DAY YEAR

In the presence of the attorney for the government, the defendant appeared in person on this date.

03/30/2009

X WITH COUNSEL EVAN PHILIP FREED, RTN (Name of Counsel)

X GUILTY, and the court being satisfied that there is a factual basis for the plea.

NOLO CONTENDERE NOT GUILTY

There being a finding/verdict of GUILTY, defendant has been convicted as charged of the offense(s) of:

Count 1: False Statement to Financial Institution, Causing an Act to be Done; 18 U.S.C. §1014, 2(b).

Class B Felony

Count 3: Engaging in Monetary Transaction in Property Derived from Specified Unlawful Activity; 18 U.S.C. §1957(a).

Class C Felony

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:

It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $200, which is due immediately.

It is ordered that the defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $560,000 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3663A.

Defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount $560,000 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.

A partial payment of $30,000 shall be paid immediately pursuant to the terms of the parties' plea agreement. The balance shall be due during the period of probation, commencing thirty days after the beginning of supervision. During the period of probation, nominal monthly payments of at least $200 shall be made. 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.

The defendant is, however, required to provide information to the probation department regarding the fair market value of any property that she currently owns or in which she currently has a interest, and further, the defendant is required to provide information to the probation department regarding the disposition of funds received from the sale of the property at 6924 South La Cienega Boulevard, Inglewood, California, the sale of property at 18343 Calvert Stret, Tarzana, California, and the sale of the property at 5960 Wilkinson Avenue, North Hollywood, California.

The information is to be provided to the probation department no later than 30 days after the commencement of supervision. To the extent that the information suggests that the defendant is in a position to make a further immediate payment toward restitution, the probation department is directed to so advise the Court so that the Court can have further proceedings with the parties concerning the matter.

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 to 18 U.S.C. § 3612(g).

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.

Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant, Soon So aka Tina So, is hereby placed on probation on Counts 1 and 3 of the 3-Count Indictment for a term ...
