The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Ronnie Greer United States District Judge
This supervised release revocation matter came before the Court on June 18, 2007, for a hearing in regard to whether or not the defendant has violated the terms of his supervised release. The defendant stipulated that he has violated the terms of his supervised release by the following:
Violation Number Nature of Noncompliance
While on supervised release, the defendant shall not commit another federal, state or local crime.
On March 2, 2007, he pled guilty pled guilty to 3 counts in Docket No. 06CR331 in Hamblen County, Tennessee, and was sentenced as follows: Count 1-Theft of property over $10,000 5 years Count 2-Evading arrest 11 mos. 29 days Count 3-Driving on a revoked license 11 mos. 29 days with all counts to run concurrently.
The defendant shall not illegally possess a controlled substance. The defendant shall refrain from any unlawful use of a controlled substance.

Therefore, the Court FINDS that the defendant is guilty of Violation Numbers 1 and 2.
It is undisputed that the defendant's violation guideline range is from twenty-one (21) to twenty-four (24) months and that his statutory maximum sentence is twenty-four (24) months. Considering the factors set out in 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a), the Court finds that these factors and any combination of the facts have been taken into account by the guideline range.

This sentence will run consecutively to his sentence in Docket No. 06CR331 out of Hamblen County, Tennessee .
