UNITED STATES of AMERICA, Plaintiff,
TERREZ SHIELDS, Defendant.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
CLIFFORD J. PROUD, Magistrate Judge.
The United States of America and the Defendant having both filed a written consent, appeared before me pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 11 and SDIL Rule 72.1(b)(2). The Defendant entered a plea of guilty to the Counts 1 and 3 of the Superseding Indictment.
After cautioning and examining the Defendant under oath concerning each of the subjects mentioned in Rule 11, I determined that the guilty plea was knowing and voluntary, and that the offenses charged are supported by an independent factual basis containing each of the essential elements of such offense.
I therefore recommend that the plea of guilty be accepted, that a presentence investigation and report be prepared, and that the Defendant be adjudicated guilty and have sentence imposed accordingly.
