FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE UPON PLEA OF GUILTY BY DEFENDANT NICHOLAS A. YOUNG TO: THE HONORABLE THERESA L. SPRINGMANN, UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
Upon Defendant Nicholas A. Young's request to enter a plea of guilty pursuant to Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, this matter came for hearing before Magistrate Judge Paul R. Cherry, on August 1, 2018, with the consent of Defendant Nicholas A. Young, counsel for Defendant Nicholas A. Young, and counsel for the United States of America.
The hearing on Defendant Nicholas A. Young's plea of guilty was in full compliance with Rule 11, Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, before the Magistrate Judge in open court and on the record.
In consideration of that hearing and the statements made by Nicholas A. Young under oath on the record and in the presence of counsel, the remarks of the Assistant United States Attorney and of counsel for Defendant Nicholas A. Young,
I FIND as follows:
(1) that Defendant Nicholas A. Young understands the nature of the charge against him to which the plea is offered;
(2) that Defendant Nicholas A. Young understands his right to trial by jury, to persist in his plea of not guilty, to the assistance of counsel at trial, to confront and cross-examine adverse witnesses, and against compelled self-incrimination;
(3) that Defendant Nicholas A. Young understands what the maximum possible sentence is, including the effect of the supervised release term, and Defendant Nicholas A. Young understands that the sentencing guidelines apply and that the Court may depart from those guidelines under some circumstances;
(4) that the plea of guilty by Defendant Nicholas A. Young has been knowingly and voluntarily made and is not the result of force or threats or of promises;
(5) that Defendant Nicholas A. Young is competent to plead guilty;
(6) that Defendant Nicholas A. Young understands that his answers may later be used against him in a prosecution for perjury or false statement;
(7) that there is a factual basis for Defendant Nicholas A. Young's plea; and further,
I RECOMMEND that the Court accept Defendant Nicholas A. Young's plea of guilty to the offense charged in the Indictment and that Defendant Nicholas A. Young be adjudged guilty of the offense charged in the Indictment and have sentence imposed. A Presentence Report has been ordered. Should this Report and Recommendation be accepted and Defendant Nicholas A. Young be adjudged guilty, a sentencing date before the presiding judge will be set by separate order. Objections to the Findings and Recommendation are waived unless filed and served within fourteen days. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
SO ORDERED this 1st day of August, 2018.
