Motion to withdraw plea

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the trial court did not err in denying defendant’s motion to withdraw his plea?    

Defendant pleaded guilty to felony domestic assault.  Subsequently, he brought a motion to withdraw his plea on the grounds that he experience cognitive dysfunction that negatively impacted his ability to understand and participate in the plea hearing, proving a fair and just reason for withdrawal.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that defendant’s medical records refuted his claim of cognitive dysfunction, whereby defendant failed to establish a fair and just reason for withdrawal.  Affirmed.

State v. Chaparro, A20-1298, Hennepin County.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
