Judge denies inmate’s request to withdraw guilty plea

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A federal court judge has ruled a career criminal dubbed the worst of the worst, cannot take back his guilty plea.

Chris Blattner has been linked to two killings, shooting at police and drug dealing.

Last year, he pleaded guilty to having guns for drug trafficking charges that could come with a 30-year sentence.

In October, he asked the judge for permission to withdraw his plea because he says he was high on LSD at the time

The judge denied the request after Blattner could not prove it.

No word yet when he will be sentenced.
