Rule 20 Transfers—Partial Pleas

The transferee court in a Rule 20 proceeding has jurisdiction to receive a plea of guilty to less than all the counts of an indictment or information and may dismiss the remainder on motion of the United States Attorney. Warren v. Richardson, 333 F.2d 781 (9th Cir. 1964). Such procedure should be with the approval of the United States Attorney in the district in which the offense was committed.
