Program Description:  

Ineffective vs. Effective Assistance of Counsel in the Context of Guilty Pleas

All but a small percentage of criminal cases are resolved by guilty pleas. Criminal defense lawyers represent the overwhelming majority of their clients in guilty plea proceedings, including negotiations, entry of the plea and sentencing. In recent years the U. S. Supreme Court in cases such as Padilla, Lefler, and Frye has addressed ineffective assistance of counsel (IAC) in the context of guilty pleas. Issues have included defense counsel giving erroneous legal advice to a client about winning at trial resulting in the rejection of a favorable plea offer, counsel’s failure to communicate a plea offer to a client, and counsel’s failure to advise a client of certain collateral consequences of pleading guilty. This program will focus on what effective assistance of counsel means with regards to plea offers and pleading guilty, raising important practice questions and providing practical answers. The program will also aid prosecutors in determining the type of record to make to prevent claims of IAC in the context of guilty pleas.
