United States v. Valez-Gonzalez

United States District Court, D. Arizona

June 4, 2019

United States of America, Plaintiff,
v.
Mario Valez-Gonzalez, Defendant.

          HONORABLE G. MURRAY SNOW, CHIEF U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE.

          FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE UPON A PLEA OF GUILTY AND ORDER

          Honorable James F. Metcalf United States Magistrate Judge.

         Upon Defendant's request to enter a plea of guilty pursuant to Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, this matter came on for hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge James F. Metcalf on May 31, 2019, with the written consents of the defendant, counsel for the defendant, and counsel for the United States of America.

         The Magistrate Judge accepted defendant's waiver of indictment after inquiry was made of the defendant as to his/her understanding of the right to prosecution by indictment. Defendant's written waiver constitutes a part of the plea agreement that has previously been lodged with the Court. Thereafter, the matter came on for a hearing on defendant's plea of guilty in full compliance with Rule 11, Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, before the Magistrate Judge in open court and on the record.

         In consideration of that hearing and the statements made by the defendant under oath on the record and in the presence of counsel, and the remarks of the Assistant United States Attorney and of counsel for defendant, I FIND as follows:

         (2) that defendant understands his/her right to trial by jury, to persist in his/her plea of not guilty, to the assistance of counsel at trial, to confront and cross-examine adverse witnesses, and his/her right against compelled self-incrimination;

         (3) that defendant understands what the maximum possible sentence is, including the effect of the supervised release term, and defendant understands that the sentencing guidelines are advisory, not mandatory, and that the Court may sentence outside those guidelines if defendant is convicted at trial;

         (4) that the plea of guilty by the defendant has been knowingly and voluntarily made and is not the result of force or threats or of promises apart from the plea agreement between the parties;

         (5) that defendant is competent to plead guilty;

         (6) that defendant understands that his/her answers may later be used against him/her in a prosecution for perjury or false statement;

         (7) that defendant understands that by pleading guilty he/she waives the right to a jury trial;

         (8) that defendant understands the terms of any plea agreement provision waiving the right to appeal or to collaterally attack the sentence, and has knowingly, ...
