X WITH COUNSEL Anne Hwang, DFPD
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 X GUILTY, defendant has been convicted as charged of the offense(s) of: Count 1 of the Indictment: 18 U.S.C. § 371: Conspiracy
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.
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $100.00, which is due
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $421,677.00 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3663A.
The amount of restitution ordered shall be paid as set forth on 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 $25.00 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 $50.00 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 to 18 U.S.C. §
The defendant shall be held jointly and severally liable with convicted co-defendants Alberto Crudu and Monica Serdaru for the full amount of restitution ordered in this judgment. The victims' recovery is limited to the amount of their loss and the defendant's liability for restitution ceases if and when the victims receive full restitution.
All fines are waived as it is found that the defendant does not have the ability to pay a fine in addition to restitution.
The defendant shall comply with General Order No. 01-05.
