CASE LAW UPDATE: Defendant brought a petition for postconviction relief to withdraw his plea to failing to register as a predatory offender
Defendant pleaded guilty to failing to register as a predatory offender in the Hennepin County District Court. Subsequently, he brought a petition for postconviction relief. He sought to withdraw his plea on the grounds that it was not voluntary and intelligent because he was not informed his sentence could include a conditional release term. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that any failure to inform defendant of the potential for a conditional release term was not ripe, and, did not invalidate his plea.
State v. Dean, A18-1514, Hennepin County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
