WI Court of Appeals – District I
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Tommie Lee Carter
Case No.: 2021AP68-CR
Officials: Brash, C.J., Dugan and White, JJ.
Focus: Plea Withdrawal
Tommie Lee Carter appeals his judgment of conviction entered after he pled guilty to attempted robbery with the threat of force. He also appeals the order denying his postconviction motion without a hearing. Carter seeks to withdraw his plea on the grounds that it was not knowing, intelligent, and voluntary because the nature of the offense was never adequately explained to him. We agree, and therefore reverse the order denying his postconviction motion, and remand this matter for an evidentiary hearing on his claim.
