US v. Mays, 09-1767

District court's conviction of defendant pursuant to his unconditional guilty plea to possession of a firearm by a felon is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in holding that a potential change in Fourth Amendment law posed by Gant did not constitute a fair and just reason for permitting defendant to withdraw his guilty plea; and 2) defendant's sentence was based on reliable information and was substantively reasonable.
