Defendant appealed his conviction and sentence, arguing that the district court violated his right against self-incrimination when the court failed to ensure affirmatively that he knowingly and voluntarily chose to testify on his own behalf. Court of Appeals affirmed.

Claim failed because defendant had no right to such a district court record.
