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 defendant, Brian Allen Viramontes, is committed on Counts 1, 8, 27, 42, and 51 of the Indictment to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of 210 months. This term consists of 150 months on each of Counts 1, 8, and 27, and 120 months on Count 42, all to be served concurrently, and 60 months on Count 51, to be served consecutively to all other terms. All terms are to be served concurrently to the undischarged term of imprisonment in Los Angeles Count Superior Court Case No. VA102514.
On release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of life.
