Vacatur Required for Failure to Advise of PRS Term

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.
