United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Javier Alvarez-vasquez, Defendant-appellant, 119 F.3d 7 (9th Cir. 1997)Annotate this Case
Before: HUG, Chief Judge, KOZINSKI and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.
Javier Alvarez-Vasquez appeals the district court's denial of his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion to vacate his guilty plea conviction for conspiracy, methamphetamine manufacture and its distribution. Alvarez-Vasquez contends he was denied effective assistance of counsel because his attorney coerced him into pleading guilty by giving him material misrepresentations as to his likely sentence. We affirm for the reasons stated in the district court's order filed October 4, 1996. See Gonzalez v. United States, 33 F.3d 1047, 1051 (9th Cir. 1994) (counsel's miscalculation of likely sentence not prejudicial error where at plea hearing, district court informed defendant of maximum possible sentence); Frazer v. United States, 18 F.3d 778, 781 (9th Cir. 1994).
