United States District Court, W.D. Missouri, Southern Division
October 9, 2014
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
BELAFONTA EUGENE WILLIAMS, Defendant.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION CONCERNING PLEA OF GUILTY
DAVID P. RUSH, Magistrate Judge.
The Defendant, by consent, has appeared before me pursuant to Rule 11, F.R.Cr.P., 22(k)(26), WDMO, and 28 U.S.C. §636, and has entered a plea of guilty to Counts One and Three and admitted to the Forfeiture Allegation One and Two contained in the Indictment filed on May 7, 2014. After cautioning and examining the Defendant under oath concerning each of the subjects mentioned in Rule 11, I determined that the guilty pleas were knowledgeable and voluntary, and that the offenses charged are supported by a factual basis for each of the essential elements of the offenses. I therefore recommend that the pleas of guilty be accepted and that the Defendant be adjudged guilty and have sentence imposed accordingly.
