Plea Withdrawal - Conditional Release

Plea Withdrawal - Conditional Release

Here is a nice update for the rights of the people.  We have a situation where an agreement was reached, one that didn't include the mandatory minimum conditional release.  The Defendant had the conditional release imposed on a modified sentence, without being informed, without a hearing, with no say at all.  The Court of Appeals took the case, and made sure he had a say.

The downside... it's not just going to go away, he's still going to fight the conditional release in court.


A14-0823       Robel Belay Kubrom, petitioner, Appellant, vs. State of Minnesota, Respondent.

                       Hennepin County District Court, Hon. Daniel H. Mabley.
           Where a defendant pleads guilty as part of a plea agreement for a definite-term sentence and is informed of a statutorily mandated conditional-release term only by reference to an undefined conditional-release term in the complaint, the defendant is entitled to withdraw his guilty plea after the bargained-for definite sentence has been executed and served in full.
           Reversed and remanded.  Judge John R. Rodenberg.
