Case No. 1:16-cr-00081-BLW

08-30-2016

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, v. RODOLFO HERNANDEZ GONZALEZ Defendant.


REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

On August 30, 2016, Defendant Rodolfo Hernandez Gonzalez appeared before the undersigned United States Magistrate Judge to enter a change of plea pursuant to a written plea agreement (Dkt. 40). The Defendant executed a waiver of the right to have the presiding United States District Judge take his change of plea. Thereafter, the Court explained to the Defendant the nature of the charges contained in the applicable Indictment (Dkt. 1), the maximum penalties applicable, his Constitutional rights, the impact that the Sentencing Guidelines will have, and that the District Judge will not be bound by the agreement of the parties as to the penalty to be imposed.

The Court, having conducted the change of plea hearing and having inquired of the Defendant, counsel, and the government, finds that there is a factual basis for the Defendant's guilty plea, that he entered it voluntarily and with full knowledge of the consequences, and that the plea should be accepted. The undersigned also ordered a pre- sentence investigation to be conducted and a report prepared by the United States Probation Office.

RECOMMENDATION

NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED:

1) The District Court accept Defendant Rodolfo Hernandez Gonzalez's plea of guilty to Count Seven of the Indictment (Dkt. 1),

2) The District Court order forfeiture consistent with Defendant Rodolfo Hernandez Gonzalez's admission to the Criminal Forfeiture allegation in the Indictment (Dkt. 1) and the Plea Agreement (Dkt. 40).

3) The District Court GRANT, at the appropriate time, the United States' motion to dismiss Count 1 of the Indictment (Dkt. 1) as to Defendant.

Written objections to this Report and Recommendation must be filed within fourteen (14) days pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Rule 72.1(b), or as a result of failing to do so, that party may waive the right to raise factual and/or legal objections to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. DATED: August 30, 2016
