Guilty Plea Reversed

Karen A. Connolly represented the defendant on post-conviction relief after he unsuccessfully tried to withdraw his guilty plea to two counts of first degree murder and waived his appeal in another case.

Ms. Connolly was his third lawyer and was able to accomplish what his prior counsel were unable to do – convince the court that he should be able to withdraw his plea. The defendant’s plea was set aside and he will now proceed to Trial.
