Conviction Vacated • Suhre & Associates


Written by Nathan Miller, Attorney at Law on January 20, 2018 in Criminal Law

Jury verdict, standard form, and contrary colloquy don’t mix.

The Kentucky Court of Appeals has issued an opinion reversing and vacating a rape conviction, because, after a guilty verdict was reached by a jury, the defendant entered into a sentencing agreement with the prosecution, only to be told by the court that he could (and then later that he could not) appeal that verdict.
