U.S. v. WERNER

Case No. 17-cr-20296.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, v. JAMES WERNER, Defendant.

United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Northern Division.


Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

James Werner, Defendant, represented by Bryan J. Sherer , Federal Defender Office.

United States of America, Plaintiff, represented by Christopher Rawsthorne , U.S. Attorney's Office.


ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION, ACCEPTING DEFENDANT'S PLEA OF GUILTY, AND TAKING THE RULE 11 PLEA AGREEMENT UNDER ADVISEMENT

THOMAS L. LUDINGTON, District Judge.

On July 13, 2017, United States Magistrate Judge Patricia T. Morris conducted a plea hearing pursuant to Defendant James Werner's consent. The magistrate judge issued her report that same day, recommending that this Court accept Defendant's plea of guilty. ECF No. 15.

Although the magistrate judge's report explicitly stated that the parties to this action could object to and seek review of the recommendation within fourteen days of service of the report, neither Plaintiff nor Defendant filed any objections. The failure to file objections waives any right to appeal the magistrate judge's findings that Defendant was competent to enter a plea, and that the plea was entered knowingly, voluntarily, without coercion, and with a basis in fact. See Fed. R. Crim. P. 11(b); Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985).

Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the magistrate judge's Report and Recommendation, ECF No. 15, is ADOPTED.

It is further ORDERED that Defendant's plea of guilty is ACCEPTED, and the Rule 11 Plea Agreement, ECF No. 13, is taken UNDER ADVISEMENT.
