CA5: Unconditional guilty plea waives 4A claims

Even after Class v. United States, 138 S. Ct. 798 (2018), an unconditional guilty plea waives search and seizure claims. “So under Class, Torres may not raise a Fourth Amendment challenge on appeal, given his voluntary unconditional guilty plea. See United States v. Tineo-Gonzalez, 893 F.3d 64, 66 (1st Cir. 2018) (recognizing post-Class that ‘[b]y pleading guilty at trial, [the defendant] waived his right to challenge the denial of a motion to suppress’).” United States v. Torres, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 28948 (5th Cir. Oct 15, 2018).
