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, Alberto Vera, is hereby committed on Counts 1, 2, and 8 of the Indictment in Docket No. 09-00445 and on Count 1 of the Indictment in Docket No. 10-00315 to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for a term of 234 months. This term consists of 210 months on each of Counts 1, 2, and 8 of the Indictment in Docket No. 09-00445, to be served concurrently, and 24 months on Count 1 of the Indictment in Docket No. 10-00315, to be served consecutively to the sentence in Docket No. 09-00445.
On release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of life. This term consists of 5 years on each of Counts 1 and 2 of the Indictment in Docket No. 09-00445, 3 years on Count 1 of the Indictment in Docket No. 10-00315, and life on Count 8 of the Indictment in Docket No. 09-00445, all such terms to run concurrently under the following terms and conditions:

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;
During the period of community supervision the defendant shall pay the special assessment in accordance with this judgment's orders pertaining to such payment;
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;
The defendant shall cooperate in the collection of a DNA sample from the defendant;
The defendant may not associate with anyone known to him to be a Varrio Hawaiian Gardens (VHG) gang member and others known to him to be participants in the VHG gang's criminal activities, with the exception of his family members. He may not wear, display, use or possess any gang insignias, emblems, badges, buttons, caps, hats, jackets, shoes, or any other clothing that defendant knows evidence affiliation with the VHG gang, and may not display any signs or gestures that defendant knows evidence affiliation with the VHG gang.
As directed by the Probation Officer, the defendant shall not be present in any area known to him to be a location where members of the VHG gang meet or assemble.
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $400, which is due immediately. Any unpaid balance shall be paid 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.
Pursuant to Guideline Section 5E1.2(a), all fines are waived as the Court finds that the defendant has established that he is unable to pay and is not likely to become able to pay any fine.
