Here are links to audio from the last two oral arguments at the NMCCA:

Tuesday, April 10, 2013: United States v. Rapp (link to audio)

Issues:
I. Whether the appellant was denied his sixth amendment right to effective assistance of counsel when he was improperly advised that the government’s evidence constituted child pornography? And whether he would have contested the charges, absent this erroneous advice?
II. Whether the military judge abused his discretion when he accepted appellant’s guilty plea despite a substantial basis in fact and law to question appellant’s guilty plea?
III. Whether the general verdicts of guilt for specification one and two must be dismissed because they may have rested on constitutionally protected conduct in that images alleged to be child pornography, as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 2256(8), are not child pornography?

Wednesday, April 3, 2013: United States v. Campbell (link to audio)

Issue: Whether the military judge abused his discretion when he accepted appellant’s guilty plea to larceny on divers occasions of an amount in excess of $500 where no single larceny exceeded $118.71?
