United States District Court, W.D. Missouri, Central Division
July 30, 2014
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
PETR BABENKO, Defendant.
BETH PHILLIPS, District Judge.
On June 24, 2014, Magistrate Judge Matt J. Whitworth issued his Report and Recommendation, (Doc. 76), concluding that the Court should deny Defendant Petr Babenko's Motions to Dismiss the Indictment. (Docs. 63, 73.) Defendant objects to the Report. (Doc. 79.) The Court has conducted an independent review of Judge Whitworth's Report and the Indictment, as well as the parties' filings submitted before and in response to the Report. The Court will adopt Judge Whitworth's Report in full as its Order.
Accordingly, Defendant Babenko's Motions to Dismiss the Indictment, (Doc. 63, 73), are DENIED. Defendant's alternative Motion to Suppress, (Doc. 63), is thus DENIED as moot. Further, Defendant's objection to the Report, (Doc. 79), is OVERRULED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
