Craig Can't Withdraw Plea

Hennepin County District Court Judge Charles Porter has turned back Larry Craig's motion to withdraw his guilty plea.

Craig, for those of you just back from Mars, is the Idaho senator who was busted for disorderly conduct in a men's room at the airport. He mailed in his guilty plea and then attempted to rescind it when the press got word.

Porter found the plea was accurate, voluntary and intelligent. The judge observed that the prosecutor advised Craig to obtain counsel and that Craig waived that right.

The full text of the opinion is available here.
