CHARLES C. LOVELL, Senior District Judge.
On December 12, 2016, this Court referred a Petition for Revocation (Doc. 68) for hearing, findings of fact, and recommendation to Magistrate Judge Johnston by order (Doc. 70).
The following factual finding is taken from the F&R:
(Doc. 84 at 5.) At the revocation hearing, Defendant Gray Hawk admitted that he violated the conditions of his supervised release. (Doc. 84 at 4.)
In the F&R, Judge Johnston recommends that this Court revoke Defendant's supervised release and sentence him to a term of imprisonment of six months with no supervised release to follow.
II. Standard of Review
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) this Court "may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge." The district judge must review the magistrate judge's findings and recommendations de novo if objection is made. See United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9
This is Defendant's third revocation proceeding. The Magistrate Judge notified the Defendant that his violation grade is C, his criminal history category is IV, and his Chapter 7 Policy Guideline Range is 6-12 months, and that he could be incarcerated for up to 24 months. He was also notified that he could be required to serve a 15-month term of supervised release, less custody time. Neither counsel objected to these findings, and this Court agrees that the guideline range and supervised release findings made by the Magistrate Judge are correct. Defense counsel requested a sentence of time-served, and government counsel requested a sentence of six months with no supervised release to follow.
IV. Revocation Determination and Sentence
The Court therefore finds by a preponderance of the evidence that Defendant violated six conditions of his supervised release. See 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(3). Defendant's supervised release should be, and hereby is, revoked, and Defendant Gray Hawk should be resentenced.
Having considered the recommended sentence, the requests of counsel for the Defendant and the government, and the section 3553(a) statutory sentencing factors as made applicable by 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e), and all the record in this case, the Court finds that the appropriate sentence should be as recommended by Magistrate Judge Johnston: six months in custody, with no supervised release to follow. The Court adopts Magistrate Judge Johnston's Findings & Recommendations in full and shall enter Judgment accordingly.
The Clerk shall send a copy of this order to Magistrate Judge Johnston and the United States Probation Office.
