A-12-0131, State of Nebraska v. Jose J. Llerenas-Alvarado (Appellant)
Madison County, District Court Judge James G. Kube
Attorney for Appellant: Charles W. Balsiger
Attorney for Appellee: Jon Bruning, Carrie A. Thober (Attorney General’s Office)
Criminal Action: Motion to Withdraw Plea
Action Taken by Trial Court: Llerenas-Alvarado entered a no contest plea to the charge of attempted kidnapping. Prior to sentencing, he moved to withdraw his plea, and this motion was denied.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the district court err in denying the withdrawal of the plea because Llerenas-Alvarado did not intelligently, knowingly and voluntarily enter his plea? Was Llerenas-Alvarado adequately warned of the immigration consequences of his no contest plea as required by Neb. Rev. Stat. §29-1819.02?
