United States District Court, S.D. Illinois
March 13, 2014
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
ADRIAN BUTLER, Defendant.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
DONALD G. WILKERSON, 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 Counts 1 and 7 of the 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 as to each count, and that the offense charged is 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.
