United States District Court, District of Montana, Great Falls Division
April 21, 2015
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
JOHN OWEN HOBBS, JR., Defendant.
ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Brian Morris, United States District Court Judge
United States Magistrate Judge John Johnston entered Findings and Recommendations in this matter on March 31, 2015. (Doc. 132). Neither party filed objections. When a party makes no objections, the Court need not review de novo the proposed Findings and Recommendations. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-52 (1986). This Court will review Judge Johnston’s Findings and Recommendations for clear error. McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981).
Hobbs admitted to having violated Special Condition 1 of his supervised release by failing to abide by all rules and regulations of the residential preentry center.
Hobbs’s admissions constitute a Grade C violation. Hobbs’s criminal history category is I and Hobbs’s underlying offense is a Class D felony. The statutory range is a maximum of 24 months in custody followed by a term of supervised release up to 36 months, less any custody time imposed. The guideline range is 3 to 9 months in custody, followed by a term of supervised release up to 36 months, less any custody time imposed.
Judge Johnston found that Hobbs violated Special Condition 1. Judge Johnston recommends that Hobbs be incarcerated for two months, with no supervised release to follow.
This Court finds no clear error in Judge Johnston’s Findings and Recommendations and adopts them in full. Incarceration for two months followed by no supervised release is an appropriate disposition of this case in light of Hobbs’s violations.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. Judge Johnston’s Findings and Recommendations (Doc. 132) is ADOPTED IN FULL and Judgment shall be entered accordingly.
