United States Attorney for the District ofDelaware, and the defendant, Philip Wesley Graham, by and
through the defendant's attorney, Dean Boland, Esquire, the following agreement is hereby entered into
by the respective parties:

I c. The child pornography had been transported in interstate commerce, or was
produced using materials which had been transported in interstate commerce.
3. The defendant agrees to pay the special assessment on the day of sentencing- If the Court
orders the payment of any fine as part of the defendant’s sentence, the defendant agrees voluntarily to
enter the Imnate Financial Responsibility Program through which the Bureau of Prisons will collect a
portion ofthe defendant’s prison salary and apply it on the defendant’s behalf to the payment of the
outstanding debt ordered.
4. Provided that the United States does not subsequently learn of conduct by the defendant
inconsistent with acceptance of responsibility, the United States agrees to recommend at sentencing a
two—level reduction for acceptance of responsibility under U.S.S.G. § 3El.l(a). lf the defendant’s
offense level is I6 or greater, the United States will move for an additional one point reduction,
pursuant to U.S.S.G. § 3El.l(a) and (b).

Guidelines and the factors set forth in 18 U.S.C. Section 3553(a) in determining an appropriate
sentence. At this stage (prior to the preparation ofthe pre—sentence report), the defendant should expect
that the Government will recommend that the Court impose a sentence consistent with the sentencing
range set forth by the sentencing guidelines. The defendant understands, however, that the ultimate
detemiination of an appropriate sentence will be up to the sentencing judge. The Court may impose a
sentence which exceeds, falls below, or is contained within the sentencing range prescribed by the
sentencing guidelines. The defendant expressly acknowledges that if the Court imposes a sentence
outside the range set forth in the sentencing guidelines, or otherwise different than the defendant
