The defendant shall pay the following total criminal monetary penalties in accordance with the schedule of payments set forth on Sheet 5 Part B.

Assessment Fine Restitution
Totals: $ 100 $ 3,000.00 $ 31,700.00 (paid)


The court determines that the defendant does have the financial ability to pay a fine within the guideline range and imposes a fine of three thousand ($3,000.00) dollars. The court determines that the defendant does not have the financial ability to pay the interest on the fine, costs of incarceration, community confinement and supervision and therefore waives the interest on the fine, costs of incarceration, costs of community confinement and supervision in this case.

A waiver of the cost of community confinement does not preclude the Bureau of Prisons from imposing a subsistence fee of up to 25 percent of gross income, based on ability to pay, for any portion of the sentence spent in a community correctional facility.


Payments shall be applied in the following order: (1) assessment; (2) fine; (3) restitution.

Special instructions regarding the payment of criminal monetary penalties:

The court considers the defendant's participation in the Federal Bureau of Prisons Inmate Financial Responsibility Program a necessary part of the repayment of the court-imposed financial obligations. Payments are to apply first to the special assessment and then to the fine until paid in full.

During any period of supervised release, the defendant shall pay any balance of any fine at a rate of no less than $50.00 per month.

Unless the court has expressly ordered otherwise in the special instructions above, if this judgment imposes a period of imprisonment payment of criminal monetary penalties shall be due during the period of imprisonment. All Criminal monetary penalty payments, except those payments made through the Bureau of Prisons' Inmate Financial Responsibility Program are to be made as directed by the court, his or her supervising probation officer, or the United States Attorney.
