US v. Bowles, 09-4219

Conviction of defendant for being a felon in possession of a firearm and sentenced to 188 months' imprisonment is affirmed, as defendant has waived his right to challenge the forcible medication order because he cannot reopen his judgment of conviction upon his guilty plea on a nonjurisdictional issue.
