US v. Figueroa-Gonzalez, 07-2225

By FindLaw Staff on October 07, 2010 3:09 PM

Defendant's Convictions for Carjacking and Firearm Use Affirmed

US v. Figueroa-Gonzalez, 07-2225, concerned a challenge to a conviction of defendant for carjacking and firearm use during and in relation to a crime of violence, claiming that defendant's alleged actual competence at the time of the pleading violated his substantive due process under the Fifth Amendment and that the court violated Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 11.

 

In affirming the judgment of the district court, the court held that there was no error, clear or otherwise, as the district court was presented with conflicting evidence and chose to conclude that the evidence was stronger in favor of competency to plead guilty.
