On May 6, 2015, the parties appeared before the Honorable Donald G. Wilkerson, 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 Pollard entered a guilty plea as to Counts 2 and 4 of the indictment (charging unlawful user of a controlled substance in possession of a firearm, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 922(g)). The United States of America agreed to dismiss Counts 1 and 3 of the indictment, as part of the plea agreement.
By Report and Recommendation docketed May 6, 2015 (Doc. 24), 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. 24), ACCEPTS Defendant's guilty plea, and ADJUDGES Defendant guilty of the offenses set forth in the indictment to which Defendant pled guilty herein. The Court DIRECTS the United States Probation Office to prepare a presentence investigation report. Finally, the Court CONFIRMS that SENTENCING shall proceed at 10:00 a.m. on September 4, 2015.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
