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.
