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: Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Conspiracy in violation of 18 U.S.C. §1962(d) as charged in Count 1 of the First Superseding Indictment.
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, Luis Paredes, is hereby committed on Count 1 of the First Superseding Indictment to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of 32 months. This term shall be served concurrently to the undischarged term of imprisonment in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Case No. VA109537.
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $100, which is due immediately. Any unpaid balance shall be due during the period of imprisonment, at the rate of not less than $25 per quarter, and pursuant to the Bureau of Prisons' Inmate Financial Responsibility Program.
All fines are waived as it is found that such sanction would place an undue burden on the defendant's dependents.
Upon release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of three years under the following terms and conditions:
1. The defendant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the
U. S. Probation Office and General Order 05-02;
2. 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;
3. During the period of community supervision the defendant shall pay the special assessment in accordance with this judgment's orders pertaining to such payment;
4. 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;
5. The defendant shall not obtain or possess any driver's license, Social Security number, birth certificate, passport or any other form of identification in any name, other than the defendant's true legal name; nor shall the defendant use, for any purpose or in any manner, any name other than his true legal name or names without the prior written approval of the Probation Officer;
6. The defendant shall cooperate in the collection of a DNA sample from the defendant;
7. The defendant may not associate with anyone known to him to be a 38th Street gang member and others known to him to be participants in the 38th Street gang's criminal activities, with the exception of her 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 38th Street gang, and may not display any signs or gestures that defendant knows evidence affiliation with the 38th Street gang; and
8. 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 38th Street gang meet and/or assemble.
It is further ordered that the defendant surrender himself to the institution designated by the Bureau of Prisons on or before 12 noon, on April 6, 2012. In the absence of such designation, the defendant shall report on or before the same date and time, to the United States Marshal located at the Roybal Federal Building, 255 East Temple Street, Los Angeles, California 90012.
The Court recommends that the defendant be designated in a Bureau of Prison facility somewhere in Southern California and wherein the defendant may participate in a 500-hour drug treatment program.
