By FindLaw Staff on December 01, 2009 1:07 PM

Defendants' drug and racketeering conspiracy sentences are affirmed where 1) despite the district court's occasional imprecision, it plainly accepted defendants' guilty pleas and left them "no reasonable basis" for thinking otherwise; 2) the district court did not impermissibly intrude on the plea-bargaining process; and 3) the district court was not required to hold an evidentiary hearing on the plea agreement.
