At the outset of the hearing, the undersigned advised the Defendant of his right to have these proceedings conducted by the District Judge assigned to the case. Further, the Defendant was advised that the Change of Plea hearing was being conducted on an Order of Reference from the District Judge, at the request of the Defendant, the Defendant's attorney and the Assistant United States Attorney assigned to this case.
