That may run concurrently With the uh international foods robbery in 15 CRS 219654. All right. Now, before I move on to the findings and form number 6:15, I'm going to ask the parties. I'm sure you've been listening and writing down the sentence sentences imposed. Are they all correct? Because I hate to have to do any amended judgments. I think they're correct from the sentencing chart. But uh the minimums appear to be within the mitigated range in each case for each of the offenses. And do I have the corresponding maximum sentences correct? In particular with regard to the to sex crimes? And I believe I'm correct in that the 60 month and has enhancement does not apply to the second degree kidnapping. Let me just have a moment. Your honor. You may. You may. You may sit down Sure. Of course. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Monster correct your honor. From the state's perspective we think that you have correctly stated the judgments and they're all from the mitigated range. All right then as to the sex offenses Madam clerk. Uh This is from form 6 15. The court does find that the defendant has been convicted of a reportable conviction specifically first degree rape and attempted first degree sex offense. These are sexually violent offenses under N. C. Gs 14-2 oh 8.6. Subsection five. The defendant has not been classified as a sexually violent predator. He is not a recidivist. Uh The offenses are aggravated Offenses Under 1400 n. CS 14-2 8.6 The this young you've checked on this form that the offense did involve the sexual abuse of a minor. Given your Theory of the case, I understand she was under 60 The age of 16. May the court make that finding. I think I can, but I wanted to make make sure you aware of any case law. One point my wife case on point that I would be able to sight to your honor. But I've had cases that have planted sexual battery before where it was played down from a benefits involving a statutory situation of sexual battery. And the court has still allowed me to make that finding. I believe it is a fact specific finding that's made. And uh in light of her age, I will find that the offense involved is sexual abuse of a minor. Frankly, it's academic in this case anyway. Uh, and based upon these findings, the court does order that upon the defendant's release from imprisonment that he shall register as a sex offender with regard to the need for satellite based monitoring the court simply will order that prior to his release. He shall be brought back to this court for a hearing on the need to determine. I'm sorry for a determination of the need for a satellite based uh monitoring. All right. Is there anything else that the court needs to do uh in connection with any of these offenses from the perspective of the state? No, your honor. All right.
