United States v. Wilcoxson
C06.40688; 595 F.2d 1227 (1979)
Order BEFORE: WEICK and LIVELY, Circuit Judges; and PHILLIPS, Senior Circuit Judge. In this case the appellant sought relief by way of a petition for a writ of error coram nobis seeking to have his conviction set aside long after his sentence had been served. The basis of the petition was a claim that appellant's 1958 guilty plea was not voluntarily and knowingly entered into by him. The district court stated that an intensive search for a transcript or the court s of appellant's guilty plea, entered into nearly 20 years prior to consideration of this petition, had been fruitless. However, the court also found that the appellant was represented by a qualified attorney at his arraignment and plea and that a waiver of indictment signed by appellant on April 2, 1958 and a consent to transfer the case signed by appellant on July 1, 1958 show that his plea was voluntary. The district court further found that the voluntariness of appellant's guilty plea is supported by his presentence report.
