On March 22, the Bronx County Supreme Court vacated CAL client G.J.’s first-degree burglary and first-degree robbery convictions, both B felonies, on the grounds that G.J. pleaded guilty to those crimes without being told that, in light of those convictions, he would be deported. G.J. then pleaded guilty to a single count of attempted second-degree assault, a non-deportable E felony, in satisfaction of the indictment against him. Scott H. Henney represented G.J. on appeal, which resulted in G.J.’s case being remanded to the trial court, and during the trial court proceedings.
