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: Subscribe to False Tax Return in violation of 26 U.S.C. Section 7206(1) as charged in Count 1 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: Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant, Dianne Smith, is hereby committed on Count 1 of the Information to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of 12 months and one day.
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.
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $102,384 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3663.
Defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $102,384 to victim(s) 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 by the Probation Officer to the fiscal section of the Clerk's Office, shall remain confidential to protect the privacy interests of the victims
A partial payment of at least $2,500 shall be paid immediately. 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.
The defendant shall be held jointly and severally liable with co-participant Percival Charles Smith (Docket No. CR12-00298-GAF), for the amount of restitution ordered in this judgment. The victim's recovery is limited to the amount of the victim's loss and the defendant's liability for restitution ceases if and when the victim receives full restitution.
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.
All fines are waived as it is found that the defendant does not have the ability to pay a fine in addition to restitution.
Upon release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of one year under the following terms and conditions:
1. 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;
2. During the period of community supervision the defendant shall pay the special assessment and restitution in accordance with this judgment's orders pertaining to such payment;
3. The defendant shall truthfully and timely file and pay taxes owed for the years of conviction; and shall truthfully and timely file and pay taxes during the period of community supervision. Further, the defendant shall show proof to the Probation Officer of compliance with this order;

6. The defendant shall participate in mental health treatment, which may include evaluation and counseling, until discharged from the treatment by the treatment provider, with the approval of the Probation Officer;
7. As directed by the Probation Officer, the defendant shall pay all or part of the costs of mental health treatment 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; and
8. The defendant shall cooperate in the collection of a DNA sample from the defendant.
The drug testing condition mandated by statute is suspended based on the Court's determination that the defendant poses a low risk of future substance abuse.
The Court authorizes the Probation Officer to disclose the Presentence Report, and/or any previous mental health evaluations or reports, to the treatment provider.
