Criminal Law : Post-Conviction Relief – Guilty Plea – Factual Basis

Where a defendant argued that his counsel failed to inform him that he was not required to register as a sex offender, which gave him a defense to the crime with which he was charged, and no factual basis existed for the court to accept his guilty plea, the denial of the post-conviction motion is reversed and remanded for an evidentiary hearing.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
