US v. Rivera-Gonzalez, 08-2142

By FindLaw Staff on December 02, 2010 3:24 PM

Conviction of defendant for cocaine related offenses

US v. Rivera-Gonzalez, 08-2142, concerned a challenge to a conviction of defendant for conspiring to distribute cocaine and a sentence of 121 months' imprisonment.  In affirming, the court held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying the defendant's motion to withdraw his guilty plea.  The court also held that the district court did not err in its sentencing calculation and defendant's sentence is reasonable.  Lastly, the court held that defendant's ineffective assistance of counsel claim is dismissed as procedurally flawed.
