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, JAVIER CARDENAS, JR. 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: one-hundred eighty (180) months, consisting of one-hundred twenty (120) months on Count 1 and sixty (60) months on Count 3 of the Indictment, to be served consecutively.

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 Prison's Inmate Financial Responsibility Program.
Pursuant to section 5E1.2 (e) of the Guidelines, all fines are waived as the Court finds that the defendant has established that he is unable to pay a fine and is not likely to become able to pay any fine.
