N.Y. Ct. App. on Court Advisals: People v. Peque

"[F]undamental fairness ... requires a trial court to make a non-citizen defendant aware of the risk of deportation because deportation frequently results from a non-citizen's guilty plea and constitutes a uniquely devastating deprivation of liberty." - People v. Peque, Nov. 19, 2013.
