S-13-0785, State of Nebraska v. Malual Mamer (Appellant)

Douglas County, Hon. W. Russell Bowie

Attorneys:  Kevin Ruser (Civil Clinical Law Program – UNL); Nathan A. Liss (Assistant Attorney General)

Civil:  Motion to Withdraw Plea – Ineffective Assistance of Counsel with Respect to Immigration Issues

Proceedings below:  District court denied motion to withdraw plea after it concluded that common-law remedy was not available because defendant could have raised his claim that counsel provided ineffective assistance with respect to immigration advisements in a postconviction proceeding.

Issues:  Whether postconviction relief was available to the defendant when he was in state custody under a sentence for only three weeks and he asserts that he did not know that he could face immigration consequences until after he was released from state custody.
