Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit issues one Indiana decision today

In USA v. Weathington (SD Ind., Judge Hamilton), an 11-page opinion, Judge Ripple writes:

Jerome Weathington pleaded guilty to five counts of armed robbery, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1951(a), and one count of brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1)(A)(ii). After the district court accepted his guilty plea, Mr. Weathington moved at the sentencing hearing to withdraw it. The court denied the motion and sentenced Mr. Weathington to 22 years’ imprisonment. On appeal, Mr. Weathington contests the district court’s denial of his motion to withdraw his guilty plea. For the reasons set forth in this opinion, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
