15 USC 376: FAILURE TO REPORT INTERSTATE SALE OF CIGARETTES (Singe-Count First Supplemental Information; a Class B Misdemeanor)
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 the defendant is hereby committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of:

The defendant shall make nominal monthly restitution payments of at least 10% of defendants's gross monthly income,
$500 , whichever is greater, during the period of probation, which shall begin 30 days after the commencement of supervision.

Payments may be subject to penalties for default and delinquency pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3612(g). The defendant shall be held jointly and severally liable ...
