JUDGMENT AND PROBATION/COMMITMENT ORDER
In the presence of the attorney for the government, the defendant appeared in person on this date. 05 21 2012
X WITH COUNSEL Andrea Jacobs, DFPD
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: Mail Fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1341, as charged in Count 1 of the Information, and Securities Fraud in violation of 15 U.S.C. §§ 77q (a) and 77x, as charged in Count 5 of the Information.
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:
The defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $200, 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.
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $6,801,453 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3663A. The amount of restitution ordered shall be paid as set forth on the attached list.
Restitution 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. If any amount of the restitution remains unpaid after release from custody, nominal monthly payments of at least 10% of defendant's gross monthly income, but not less than $300, whichever is greater, during the period of supervised release and shall begin 30 days after the commencement of supervision. Nominal restitution payments are ordered as the court finds that the defendant's economic circumstances do not allow for either immediate or future payment of the amount ordered.
If the defendant makes a partial payment, each payee shall receive approximately proportional payment unless another priority order or percentage payment is specified in this judgment.
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3612(f)(3)(A), interest on the restitution ordered is waived because the defendant does not have the ability to pay interest. Payments may be subject to penalties for default and delinquency pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §
The defendant shall comply with General Order No. 01-05.
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.
Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant, Richard H. Nickles, is hereby committed on Counts 1 and 5 of the Information to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of 144 months. This term consists of 144 months on Count 1 and 60 months on Count 5 of the Information to be
