GUILTY PLEA VACATED

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Michael Collado was recently successful in vacating his client's criminal conviction in a justice court in Orange County. In his motion papers, Mr. Collado was able to successfully argue that his client's plea of guilty to the misdemeanor offense of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree was obtained in violation of his client's state and federal constitutional right to counsel. The court vacated the conviction and Mr. Collado was able to negotiate a resolution where his client was allowed to plead guilty to a traffic infraction to resolve the case.
