Remedying Improper Guilty Pleas

Concerning a remedy for improperly entered guilty pleas.
Session:
2019 Regular Session
Subject:
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

The bill finds that some criminal defendants who, when they entered a guilty plea in connection with a deferred judgment, were not advised that there may be additional penalties that attach to the plea even if the plea is later withdrawn and the case is dismissed. These defendants did not knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily enter the plea of guilty as required by law. The bill authorizes these persons to petition the court for an order vacating the guilty plea.
