|UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JODY RAY ALVEY
JODY RAY ALVEY,
Mr. Alvey claims that the district court erred by not considering the factors enumerated in 18 U.S.C. §§ 3553(a) & 3572(a), and USSG § 5E1.2(d) in imposing a fine. However, where a district court has before it unchallenged and uncontroverted information relevant to the imposition of a fine and has no indication that a fine may be inappropriate, it is presumed that all of the relevant sentencing factors are considered. See United States v. Nez, 945 F.2d 341, 343 (10th Cir. 1991). In these circumstances, a district court's failure to make findings is not plain error. See id.
Likewise, Mr. Alvey's claim that the fine is excessive is not plain error. The presentence report contains facts that could suggest an ability to pay; specifically statements regarding Mr. Alvey's claimed income, and the presence of large sums of cash on his person. 2 R. at 15, ¶¶ 76 & 79. No objection was made to this part of the presentence report. Mr. Alvey now objects on the grounds that the fine was based upon unreliable hearsay, see United States v. Browning, 61 F.3d 752, 755 (10th Cir. 1995), however, he has waived such an objection. See United States v. Deninno, 29 F.3d 572, 580 (10th Cir. 1994).

*. This order and judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. This court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
**. After examining the briefs and the appellate record, this three-judge panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not be of material assistance in the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 10th Cir. R. 34.1 (G). The cause is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.
