X WITH COUNSEL Pedro V Castillo, DFPD
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:
42 USC 408(a)(4): SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS FRAUD (Count Two of the Seven-Count 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, Alda Faye Strong, is hereby placed on probation on Count 7 of the 7-Count Indictment for a term of three years under the following terms and
The defendant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the U. S. Probation Office and General Order 318;
During the period of community supervision the defendant shall pay the special assessment and restitution in accordance with this judgment's orders pertaining to such payment;
The defendant shall apply monies in excess of $500 received from income tax refunds to the outstanding court-ordered financial obligation. In addition, the defendant shall apply all monies received from lottery winnings, inheritance, judgments and any anticipated or unexpected financial gains to the outstanding court-ordered financial obligation;
The defendant shall cooperate in the collection of a DNA sample from the defendant;
CONDITION DELETED BY THE COURT;
The defendant shall not obtain or possess any driver's license, Social Security number, birth certificate, passport or any other form of identification in any name or reflecting any birth date, other than the defendant's true legal name and date of birth; nor shall the defendant use, for any purpose or in any manner, any name or birth date other than her true legal name and date of birth without the prior written approval of the Probation Officer.

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. The defendant shall make nominal monthly payments of at least $50 during the period of probation, which 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 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.
