Vacatur Required for Failure to Advise of PRS Term
3.5.20

On March 5, 2020, the Appellate Division, First Department reversed CAL client W.S.’s conviction on more than 20 counts of gun-related charges. The Court held that W.S. was entitled to vacatur of his guilty plea because the plea court failed to advise him that his sentence would include a five-year term of post-release supervision. CAL attorney Megan Byrne represented W.S. on appeal.
