JASON MEDINA, Defendant.
PHILIP P. SIMON, Chief District Judge.
This matter is before me on the Findings and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Andrew P. Rodovich relating to defendant Jason Medina's request to enter a plea of guilty to Counts 1 and 31 of the Fourth Superseding Indictment, pursuant to Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. [DE 1322.] Following a hearing on the record on January 14, 2015 [DE 1321], Judge Rodovich found that defendant understands the charges, his rights, and the maximum penalties; that defendant is competent to plead guilty; that there is a factual basis for defendant's plea; and that the defendant knowingly and voluntarily entered into his agreement to enter a plea of guilty. Judge Rodovich recommends that the Court accept defendant's plea of guilty and proceed to impose sentence. Neither party has filed a timely objection to Judge Rodovich's Findings and Recommendation.
Having reviewed the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation Upon a Plea of Guilty, to which no objection has been filed, the Court hereby ADOPTS the Findings and Recommendation [DE 1322] in their entirety.
Defendant Jason Medina is adjudged GUILTY of Counts 1 and 31 of the fourth superseding indictment.
The sentencing hearing is set for May 14, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. Hammond/Central time.
