Highlight

A guilty plea must be knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily made to be valid.
Any error that does not affect a defendant's substantial rights is harmless and must be disregarded.
Generally, ineffective assistance of counsel claims should be raised in a post-conviction proceeding to allow the parties to fully develop a record of counsel's performance and its impact on the defendant.
