Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a wire fraud matter, the denial of Defendant's motion to withdraw his guilty plea is affirmed, where "newly available evidence" does not constitute "newly discovered evidence" justifying withdrawal of a guilty plea. Sentence is vacated, where there was insufficient evidence to support the number of victims enhancement imposed by the District Court.
