Pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 11 and Southern District of Illinois Local Rule 72.1(b)(2), with the consent of all parties and following a thorough colloquy, Defendant Hemphill entered a guilty plea to Count I of the Superseding Indictment.
By Report filed March 27, 2007, Judge Proud recommends that the undersigned District Judge accept Defendant Hemphill's guilty plea, find Defendant Hemphill guilty, direct the Probation Office to prepare a presentence investigation report, and schedule sentencing herein.
