Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance — plea withdrawal
Ryan L. Kohlhoff appeals a judgment of conviction and order denying postconviction relief. The issues presented are whether: (1) Kohlhoff is entitled to withdraw his no contest plea to a misdemeanor crime involving domestic violence because the court did not accurately inform him that his plea would result in him losing the right to possess a firearm; and (2) Kohlhoff is entitled to a Machner hearing on whether defense counsel was ineffective by failing to request a deferred prosecution agreement during plea negotiations. For the reasons explained below, we affirm. This opinion will not be published.
