Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure – plea withdrawal
APPEAL from a judgment and an order of the circuit court for Brown County: THOMAS J. WALSH, Judge. Affirmed.
Patricia Perez appeals a judgment, entered upon her no contest pleas, convicting her of arson and two counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, all counts as party to a crime (PTAC). Perez also appeals the order denying her postconviction motion for plea withdrawal. Perez argues the circuit court erred by denying her plea withdrawal motion because she was not accurately informed of PTAC liability and did not otherwise understand the concept. Because the record supports the conclusion Perez understood PTAC liability at the time she entered her no contest pleas, we affirm the judgment and order.
