US v. Chavers, 06-4303
Denial of a motion to withdraw a guilty plea for knowingly attempting to bring a loaded semiautomatic pistol on an airplane is affirmed over defendant's arguments that: 1) he did not know the gun was loaded when he gave it to airport personnel, thus undermining the factual basis of his guilty plea; and 2) the district court applied the wrong legal standard in evaluating the motion.
