Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS in its entirety the Report and Recommendation (Doc. 31), ACCEPTS Defendant's guilty plea, and ADJUDGES Defendant guilty of the offenses set forth therein.
The Court DIRECTS the United States Probation Office to prepare a presentence investigation report. Finally, the Court CONFIRMS that SENTENCING shall proceed at 11:00 a.m. on October 25, 2013.
