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, Kenneth Joseph Lucas, II, is hereby committed on the Single-Count Indictment to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of 60 months.

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.
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.
The Court recommends that the Bureau of Prisons conduct a mental health evaluation of the defendant and provide all necessary treatment.

6. The defendant shall cooperate in the collection of a DNA sample from the defendant.
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a)(2)(D), 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 and in order to provide correctional treatment in the most effective manner. Further redisclosure of the Presentence Report by the treatment provider is prohibited without the consent of the sentencing judge.
