On April 28, 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 Ahmed entered a guilty plea as to Count 1 of the indictment (charging conspiracy to unlawfully acquire food stamps). By Report and Recommendation docketed April 28, 2015 (Doc. 96), Judge Williams 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. 96), ACCEPTS Defendant Ahmed's guilty plea, and ADJUDGES Defendant guilty of the offense set forth in the indictment to which Defendant pled guilty on April 28, 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 July 31, 2015.
