"Appellant Temitope Akinsade appeals the district court’s denial of his petition for writ of error coram nobis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1651 claiming that he was denied effective assistance of counsel when he plead guilty to embezzlement by a bank employee in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 656, a Class B felony. For the following reasons, we grant the petition and vacate Akinsade’s conviction. ... we find that counsel’s affirmative misrepresentations that the crime at issue was non-deportable prejudiced Akinsade. Akinsade has met his burden under prong two of Strickland. In doing so, he has also demonstrated that he has suffered a fundamental error necessitating coram nobis relief. ... Accordingly, we grant the petition for writ of error coram nobis and vacate Akinsade’s conviction." - U.S. v. Akinsade, July 25, 2012. [Yes, this is the same Akisade as the May CA2 decision.]
Hats way off to Thomas K. Ragland!
