CASE ENTRY

Rodriguez-Penton v. United States

Defendant entered a guilty plea without being fully apprised of the possible immigration consequences, though he says he wouldn’t have gone to trial anyway. Sixth Circuit (over a dissent): But he might have been able to negotiate about those consequences in the course of plea bargaining, so he gets to withdraw the plea anyway.
