U 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:
18 U.S.C. § 1343 WIRE FRAUD; 21 U.S.C. § 111(a)(1)(b): ASSAULTING A FEDERAL OFFICER; 18 U.S.C. § 1028A (a)(1), 2 AGGRAVATED IDENTITY THEFT; AIDING AND ABETTING LIABILITY AND CAUSING AN ACT TO BE DONE as charged in the 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 is hereby committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of: Sixty-one (61) Months.
It is 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.
Defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $15,014.52 to victims as set forth in a separate victim list prepared by the probation office which this Court adopts and which reflects the Court's determination of the amount of restitution due to each victim. The victim list, which shall be forwarded to the fiscal section of the clerk's office, shall remain confidential to protect the privacy interests of the victims.
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 defendants's gross monthly income, but not less than $100, 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.
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. § 3612(g).
The defendant shall comply with General Order No. 01-05.
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.
Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant, Osbaldo Alberto Romero, is hereby committed on Counts 7 and 16 of the Indictment to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for a term of 61 months. This term consists of 37 months on Count 7 as well as 24 months on Count 16, to be served consecutively to Count 7.
The term on Count 7 is to be served concurrently with the undischarged term of imprisonment for the sentence imposed in Los Angeles County Superior Court case number VA120995.
Upon release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of three years. This term consists of three years on Count 7 and one year on Count 16 of the Indictment, all such terms to run concurrently under the following
The defendant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the U. S. Probation Office, General Order 05-02, and General Order 01-05, including the three special conditions delineated in General Order 01-05;

As directed by the Probation Officer, the defendant shall pay all or part of the costs of treating the defendant's drug dependency to the aftercare contractor during the period of community supervision, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3672.
