The bill finds that some criminal defendants who, when they
entered a guilty plea in connection with a deferred judgment, were not
advised that there may be additional penalties that attach to the plea even
if the plea is later withdrawn and the case is dismissed. These defendants
did not knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily enter the plea of guilty
as required by law. The bill authorizes these persons to petition the court
for an order vacating the guilty plea.
