ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
The Court has before it a Report and Recommendation filed by the United States Magistrate Judge. (Docket No. 267). On December 7, 2005, Defendant Maria Vidriezca-Guzman appeared before the Magistrate Judge to enter a change of plea pursuant to a written plea agreement. The Magistrate Judge conducted the plea hearing and concluded there is a factual basis for Defendant's plea of guilty to Counts One and Ninety-Eight of the First Superseding Indictment (Docket No. 215), and that it was entered voluntarily and with full knowledge of the consequences. No objections to the Report and Recommendation have been filed.
The Court now has reviewed the record and finds that the requirements of Rule 11 have been met. See United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114 (9th Cir. 2003). Specifically, the Court finds that the Magistrate Judge adhered to the requirements of Rule 11(b); that under Rule 11(b)(2), the Defendant's plea was voluntary and not the result of force or threats or promises apart from the plea agreement; and that a factual basis for the plea exists. See id. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that:
1. The Report and Recommendation (Docket No. 267) shall be, and the same is hereby, ADOPTED as the decision of the District Court and incorporated fully herein by reference.
2. The Defendant's plea of guilty to Counts One and Ninety-Eight of the First Superseding Indictment (Docket No. 215) shall be, and the same is hereby, ACCEPTED by the Court as a knowing and voluntary plea supported by an independent basis in fact containing each of the essential elements of the offense.
3. Defendant Maria Vidriezca-Guzman is found to be GUILTY as to the crime charged in Counts One and Ninety-Eight of the First Superseding Indictment (Docket No. 215).
