N.J. Sup. Ct. App. Div. on Padilla - State v. Antuna

August 17, 2016 (1 min read)

State v. Antuna, Aug. 16, 2016 - "Defendant Mariano Antuna appeals from an August 4, 2014 order denying his petition for post-conviction relief (PCR). Defendant argues he received ineffective assistance of counsel because his trial counsel failed to properly advise him of potential immigration consequences resulting from his conviction following a guilty plea. Alternatively, defendant argues counsel's failure to read to him or have him complete the plea form, resulted in ineffective assistance of counsel. We agree with the latter contention and reverse."
