X GUILTY, and the court being satisfied that there is a factual basis for the plea. NOLO
There being a finding/verdict of X GUILTY, defendant has been convicted as charged of the offense(s) of: Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§846, 841(a)(1), (b)(1)(A)(viii); and Possession of Firearm in Furtherance of Drug Trafficking Crime in violation of 18 U.S.C. §924(c)(1)(A)(I) as charged in Counts 1 and 3 of the Indictment.
The Court asked whether there was any reason 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, Rahul Sharma, is hereby committed on Counts 1 and 3 of the 3-Count Indictment to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for a term of 180 months. This term consists of 120 months on Count 1, and 60 months on Count 3, to be served consecutively.
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $200, which is due immediately.
All fines are waived as it is found that the defendant does not have the ability to pay.
Upon release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of five years. This term consists of five years on each of Counts 1 and 3, all such terms to run concurrently under the following terms and conditions:
1. The defendant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the U. S. Probation Office and General Order 318;
2. 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;

4. During the period of community supervision the defendant shall pay the special assessment in accordance with this judgment's orders pertaining to such payment;
5. When not employed or excused by the Probation Officer for schooling, training, or other acceptable reasons, the defendant shall perform 20 hours of community service per week as directed by the Probation Officer; and
