Yesterday CAAF granted review of this issue:
Whether Appellant’s forum selection was not made knowingly and voluntarily because he was misadvised by all parties regarding the maximum punishment for possession of what “appears to be” child pornography.
United States v. St. Blanc, No. 10-0178/AF (C.A.A.F. Aug. 12, 2010).
There are two AFCCA decisions in the case due to an initial remand for a new CA’s action. Here’s the second AFCCA opinion in the case. But for purposes of the granted issue, it’s the first AFCCA opinion that’s important. It’s here.
CAAF ordered that briefs be filed, though the issue looks like a trailer to United States v. Beaty, which we discussed here.
