Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Conviction for drug crimes and firearms possession is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's motion to withdraw his guilty plea as he did not present a fair and just reason to withdraw the plea based on ineffective assistance of counsel; 2) the court did not err in determining that defendant was competent and his plea was entered knowingly and voluntarily; and 3) the court did not abuse its discretion in determining the Watson decision did not provide a fair and just reason for withdrawal of defendant's guilty plea for possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime as there was ample evidence to convict him of the crime.
