MICHAEL J. REAGAN, District Judge.
On February 20, 2015, the parties appeared before the Honorable Stephen C. Williams, United States Magistrate Judge. 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 to Count 1 of the one count indictment. That same day, Judge Williams notified the parties that any objection to his Report and Recommendation (recommending Defendant's guilty plea be accepted) would be due on or before March 9, 2015 (Doc. 39).
No objections were filed by either party prior to the deadline. Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS in its entirety the Report and Recommendation (Doc. 39), ACCEPTS Defendant Smith's guilty plea, and ADJUDGES Defendant Smith guilty of the offenses set forth therein. The Court notes that a pre-plea pre-sentence report has already been prepared, and ORDERS the United States Probation Office to work with the parties if revisions are necessary. The Court CONFIRMS that sentencing remains set for May 28, 2015, at 11:00 a.m.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
