Seventh Circuit -- USA v. Guy Westmoreland

No 6A violation in 8 year delay in FRCrimP Rule 33 motion -- no prejudice, and no chance of being freed sooner on reversal, given unchallenged counts.

No violation of right to counsel for collateral challenge filed simultaneously with (represented) direct appeal, as counsel was free to decline to help with unwise motion.
