Javier Alvarez-Vasquez appeals the district court's denial of his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion to vacate his guilty plea conviction for conspiracy, methamphetamine manufacture and its distribution. Alvarez-Vasquez contends he was denied effective assistance of counsel because his attorney coerced him into pleading guilty by giving him material misrepresentations as to his likely sentence. We affirm for the reasons stated in the district court's order filed October 4, 1996. See Gonzalez v. United States, 33 F.3d 1047, 1051 (9th Cir.1994) (counsel's miscalculation of likely sentence not prejudicial error where at plea hearing, district court informed defendant of maximum possible sentence); Frazer v. United States, 18 F.3d 778, 781 (9th Cir.1994).




The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R.App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4
