Appellant was convicted in state court on his pleas of guilty in each of four separate criminal proceedings. In the United States District Court, which held a full evidentiary hearing at which appellant was represented by counsel, he contended that in each case his guilty plea was coerced; he was not advised by the trial court of his Constitutional rights; and that each of his four separate counsel appointed to represent him was ineffective in failing to explain his rights.
