Petition for postconviction relief

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.
