SECTION 2255; TERMINATION ENTRY
Pursuant to the citations to the record and of authority, as well as the reasoning set forth in the Report and Recommendations of the United States Magistrate Judge (Doc. #41), as well as upon a thorough de novo review of this Court's file and the applicable law, said Report and Recommendations are adopted in their entirety. Defendant-Petitioner's Objections to said judicial filing (Doc. #42) are overruled. Judgment will be ordered entered in favor of the Plaintiff-Respondent and against Defendant-Petitioner, denying Defendant-Petitioner's Motion to Vacate, Etc., filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Section 2255.
In ruling as aforesaid, the Court makes the following, non-exclusive observations:
1. When asked by the Court, at the time of entering the plea, whether he was pleading guilty because he was in fact guilty as charged, the Defendant replied in the affirmative.
2. During allocution, the Defendant did not protest his innocence, but instead asked for mercy. Indeed, Defendant never sought to withdraw his guilty plea in the more than three years between the date he entered same and the date the instant Section 2255 Motion was filed.
3. When he testified before the State Medical Board in licensure revocation proceedings, the Defendant once again acknowledged his wrongdoing.
The captioned cause is hereby ordered terminated upon the docket records of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Western Division, at Dayton.
