UNITED STATES v. MENDOZA

Case No. 1:21-CR-00328-DCN.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, v. JUDY ANNE MENDOZA, Defendant.

United States District Court, D. Idaho.

April 11, 2022.


REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

On April 11, 2022, Defendant appeared before the undersigned United States Magistrate Judge to enter a change of plea. Defendant executed a written waiver of the right to have the presiding United States District Judge take her change of plea. Thereafter, the Court explained to Defendant the nature of the charges, the maximum penalties applicable, her constitutional rights, the effect of the Sentencing Guidelines, and that the District Judge would not be bound by any agreement of the parties as to the penalty to be imposed. Further, the undersigned ordered a pre-sentence report.

Having conducted the change of plea hearing and having inquired of Defendant and her counsel, and counsel for the United States, the Court concludes that there is a factual basis for Defendant's plea of guilty, and that it was entered voluntarily and with full knowledge of the consequences, and that the plea should be accepted. The undersigned also ordered a pre-sentence investigation to be conducted and a report prepared by the United States Probation Office.

RECOMMENDATION

NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED:

1. The District Court accept Defendant's plea of guilty to Count Four of the Indictment (Dkt. 1). 2. The District Court GRANT, at the appropriate time, the United States' motion to dismiss Counts One, Two, and Three of the Indictment (Dkt. 1) as to Defendant. 3. The District Court order forfeiture consistent with Defendant's admission to the Criminal Forfeiture allegation in the Indictment (Dkt. 1).

Written objections to this Report and Recommendation must be filed within fourteen (14) days pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Rule 72.1(b), or as a result of failing to do so, that party may waive the right to raise factual and/or legal objections to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
