On January 8, 2014, the parties appeared before the Honorable Donald G.

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 entered a guilty plea as to Count 1 of the indictment (charging felon in possession of a firearm). By Report and Recommendation signed January 8, 2014 and entered January 9, 2014 (Doc. 20), Judge Wilkerson recommends that the undersigned District Judge accept Defendant's guilty plea, find Defendant guilty, direct the United States Probation Office to prepare a presentence investigation report, and schedule sentencing herein.

Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS in its entirety the Report and Recommendation (Doc. 20), ACCEPTS Defendant's guilty plea, and ADJUDGES Defendant guilty of the offense set forth in the indictment to which Defendant pled guilty on January 8, 2015. The Court DIRECTS the United States Probation Office to prepare a presentence investigation report. Finally, the Court CONFIRMS that SENTENCING shall proceed at 9:00 a.m. on April 10, 2015.
