This opinion is subject to petition for rehearing. [Go to Documents] [Download as WordPerfect]
[¶1] Steven Paul Klein appealed a criminal judgment and sentence as well as a district court order denying his motion to withdraw his guilty plea. Klein argues the district court abused its discretion by denying his motion to withdraw his guilty plea. He also argues the district court erred in sentencing him as a dangerous special offender under N.D.C.C. § 12.1-32-09. We conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion by denying Klein's motion to withdraw his guilty plea, and the judgment sentencing Klein as a dangerous special offender is supported by substantial evidence. We affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3) and (4).
