Craig files to withdraw guilty plea

September 11, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Sen. Larry Craig filed court papers seeking to withdraw his guilty plea in a sting in a men's restroom at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, arguing that he entered the plea under stress caused by media inquiries into his sexuality.

The Idaho Republican pleaded guilty in August to disorderly conduct after his June arrest. A police report alleged that Craig had solicited sex from a male officer, which the senator denied amid a growing scandal.
