Sen. Larry Craig: Court Denies Plea Withdrawal
Bad news for Sen. Larry Craig. The court has denied his motion to withdraw his guilty plea.
“Because the defendant’s plea was accurate, voluntary and intelligent, and because the conviction is supported by the evidence ... the Defendant’s motion to withdraw his guilty plea is denied,” Hennepin County Judge Charles Porter wrote.
Here's the Order (pdf).
The question now: Will Craig appeal?
Update: Craig will not resign before the end of his term.
