United States v. Chandler

United States District Court, D. Montana

June 5, 2015

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
KENNETH MARTIN CHANDLER, Defendant.

ORDER

Dana L. Christensen, Chief District Judge United States District Court

United States Magistrate Judge Jeremiah C. Lynch entered Findings and Recommendation in this matter on May 20, 2015. Neither party objected and therefore they are not entitled to de novo review of the record. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003). This Court will review the Findings and Recommendation for clear error. McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981). Clear error exists if the Court is left with a “definite and firm conviction that a mistake has been committed.” United States v. Syrax, 235 F.3d 422, 427 (9th Cir. 2000).

Judge Lynch recommended this Court accept Kenneth Martin Chandler’s guilty plea after Chandler appeared before him pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 11, and entered a plea of guilty to one count of distribution of methamphetamine in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a) (Count III), as set forth in the Indictment. In exchange for Defendant’s plea, the United States has agreed to dismiss Counts I, II, and IV of the Indictment.

I find no clear error in Judge Lynch’s Findings and Recommendation (Doc. 30), and I adopt them in full, including the recommendation to defer acceptance of the Plea Agreement until sentencing when the Court will have reviewed the Plea Agreement and Presentence Investigation Report.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Kenneth Martin Chandler’s motion to change plea (Doc. 23) is GRANTED and Kenneth Martin Chandler is adjudged guilty of the offense charged in Count III of the Indictment.
