REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
ROBERT E. LARSEN, Magistrate Judge.
On October 7, 2014, I ordered Defendant to undergo a competency evaluation (Doc. No. 175). Defendant was examined by Jeremiah Dwyer, Ph.D., who prepared a report dated March 17, 2015.
A competency hearing was held on April 23, 2015. The government was represented by Assistant United States Attorney John Cowles. Defendant in person with appointed attorney David Guastello. The parties stipulated to the contents and findings of Dr. Dwyer's report (Tr. at 2). No additional evidence was presented. The parties waived the fourteen-day objection period (Tr. at 3).
Based upon the uncontroverted evidence, I find that Defendant is competent to proceed. Therefore, it is
RECOMMENDED that the court, after making an independent review of the record and applicable law, enter an order finding Defendant competent.
