Rocky Houston accused his attorney of calling him a “(expletive) idiot” for refusing to take a plea deal on Jan. 28.
Houston now wants Michael McGovern off the case, but he failed
to convince U.S. Magistrate C. Clifford Shirley Jr.
“The defendant’s request for substitution of counsel is denied,” Shirley said in a seven-page order filed on March 4. “The court declines to substitute other appointed counsel for Mr. McGovern.”
Houston is charged in federal court with being a convicted felon in possession of firearms.
