CAAF has issued an opinion in United States v. Riley.
Private Cassandra Riley plead guilty to kidnapping of a minor, she had a PTA for 11 years, and the MJ sentenced her to five.
Problem – Private Riley was never advised of the need to register as a sex offender by her defense counsel and there was no discussion on the record by the MJ. Private Riley found out about the need to register several months after trial.
The CAAF set aside the conviction finding based on an improvident plea. The CAAF did not reach the issue of IAC which was also litigated.
