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 GUILTY, defendant has been convicted as charged of the offense(s) of:

Illegal Alien Found in the United States Following Deportation in violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1326

(a) as charged in the Single Count Information.

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: the defendant is hereby committed on Single Count Information to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of eighteen (18) months. Upon release from imprisonment defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of three (3) years under the following terms and conditions:

The defendant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the U. S. Probation Office and General Order 05-02 , but not limited to, the condition that defendant shall not commit another federal, state or local crime;

The defendant shall participate in outpatient substance abuse treatment and submit to drug and alcohol testing, within fifteen 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, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3583 (d). The defendant shall abstain from using illicit drugs, alcohol, and abusing prescription medications during the period of supervision;

The defendant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the United States and, if deported from this country, either voluntarily or involuntarily, not re-enter the United States illegally. The defendant is not required to report to the Probation Office while residing outside of the United States; however, within seventy-two (72) hours of release from any custody or any re-entry to the United States during the period of Court-ordered supervision, the defendant shall report for instructions to the U.S. Probation Office, located at the United States Courthouse, 312 North Spring Street, Room 600, Los Angeles, California 90012 or Ronald Reagan Federal Building and U. S. District Courthouse, 411 West Fourth Street, 4 th Floor, Santa Ana, California 92701;

The defendant shall not obtain or possess any driver's license, Social Security number, birth certificate, passport or any other form of identification without the prior written approval of the Probation Officer; further, the defendant shall not use, for any purpose or in any manner, any name other than his true legal name;

The defendant shall cooperate in the collection of a DNA sample from the defendant.

Pursuant to Section 5E1.2 (e) of the Guidelines, all fines are waived as it is found that the defendant SPECIAL ASSESSMENT: It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $100, which is due immediately.

The Court considers the sentence as stated to be reasonable given consideration of the factors set forth in 18 U.S.C. § 3553, including: under factor (a) (1), the defendant's history of committing a crime in the United States and then returning illegally to the United States following deportation; under factor (a) (2) (A), the need for the sentence to promote respect for the laws and sufficiently and justly punish the defendant for this serious offense; under factor (a) (2) (B), the need for the sentence to impress upon defendant and others the seriousness of his offense of illegally returning to the United States and deter him, specifically, and others, generally, from returning illegally; and under factor (a) (2) ( C), the need for the sentence and defendant's anticipated subsequent deportation to protect the public from further crimes of the defendant.

Also in its consideration, the Court had evaluated the Sentencing Guidelines as required in 18 U.S.C. § 3553 (a) (4), and finds the calculations of suggested sentence therein for this defendant under the present circumstances to be reasonable.

The Court will therefore sentence defendant as previously stated, which is in accordance with the binding plea agreement entered into by the parties under Fed. R. Crim. P. 11 ( c) (1) ( C).

The Court RECOMMENDS a BOP facility as close to the Southern California vicinity as possible.

In addition to the special conditions of supervision imposed above, it is hereby ordered that the Standard Conditions of Probation and Supervised Release within this judgment be imposed. The Court may change the conditions of supervision, reduce or extend the period of supervision, and at any time during the supervision period or within the maximum period permitted by law, may issue a warrant and revoke supervision for a violation occurring during the supervision period.

This is a direct commitment to the Bureau of Prisons, and the Court has NO OBJECTION should the Bureau of Prisons designate defendant to a Community Corrections Center.
