Richard Nahigian, Retained
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:
Distribution of At Least 50 grams of Methamphetamine, Aiding and Abetting pursuant to 21 U.S.C. Section 841(a)(1), 18 U.S.C. Section 2 as charged in Count 6 of the Indictment
The Court and counsel confer. Counsel present argument. Defendant addresses the Court. The Court places findings on the record and proceeds with sentencing. 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, Albert Curiel, is hereby committed on count six of the six-count indictment to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY-SIX (176) MONTHS. This term represents a downward departure pursuant to U.S.S.G. § 5G1.3, rather than as a credit for time served. Pursuant to U.S.S.G. § 5G1.3(c), this term shall run concurrent to the undischarged term of imprisonment in Los Angeles County Superior Court, case number PA068151.
Upon release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of FIVE (5) 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;
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;
The defendant shall participate in an outpatient substance abuse treatment and counseling program that includes urinalysis, breath, and/or sweat patch testing, as directed by the Probation Officer. The defendant shall abstain from using illicit drugs and alcohol, and abusing prescription medications during the period of supervision;
During the course of supervision, the Probation Officer, with the agreement of the defendant and defense counsel, may place the defendant in a residential drug treatment program approved by the United States Probation Office for treatment of narcotic addiction or drug dependency, which may include counseling and testing, to determine if the defendant has reverted to the use of drugs, and the defendant shall reside in the treatment program until discharged by the Program Director and Probation Officer;
As directed by the Probation Officer, the defendant shall pay all or part of the costs of treating the defendant's drug and alcohol dependency to the aftercare contractor during the period of community supervision, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3672. The defendant shall provide payment and proof of payment 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; and
The defendant shall cooperate in the collection of a DNA sample from the defendant.
The Court authorizes the Probation Office to disclose the Presentence Report to the substance abuse treatment provider to facilitate the defendant's treatment for narcotic addiction or drug dependency. Further redisclosure of the Presentence Report by the treatment provider is prohibited without the consent of the sentencing judge.
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.
