On July 2, 2007, the parties appeared before the Honorable Donald G. Wilkerson, United States Magistrate Judge of this District Court. 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 Hall entered a guilty plea to Counts 1, 2 and 3 of the Indictment.
By Report filed July 2, 2007, Judge Wilkerson recommends that the undersigned District Judge accept Defendant Hall's guilty plea, find Defendant Hall guilty and direct the Probation Office to prepare a presentence investigation report.
