The Clerk of Court mailed the Report and Recommendations to Petitioner via certified mail at his address of record at the Marshall County Correctional Facility in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Petitioner received the Report and Recommendations on November 8, 2013. Acknowledgment of Receipt . The Report and Recommendations advised Petitioner that he had fourteen days from the date he received the Report and Recommendations to serve and file written objections. Rep. and Rec.  at pp. 6-7. Petitioner requested and received two extensions of time to file written objections. His objections were ultimately due on January 23, 2014, but to date, Petitioner has not filed any objections.
