US v. Pineda-Buenaventura, 09-1500

In prosecutions of four defendants for their involvement in a large cocaine distribution, district court's judgment is affirmed in part, vacated in part and remanded where: 1) one defendant's sentence is vacated and remanded for resentencing as the district court's drug quantity findings did not support the sentence he received; 2) co-defendant's conviction is vacated and remanded because his plea colloquy did not satisfy the requirements of Rule 11; 3) district court's denial of third co-defendant's motion to suppress is affirmed as he and his co-tenants gave valid consent to search his apartment; and 4) fourth co-defendant's counsel's motion to withdraw is granted as a challenge to the reasonableness of the defendant's sentence would be frivolous.
