- Case Type
- CIVIL APPEAL : POST-CONVICTION RELIEF
- Appeal From
Case No. 2018-CV-03036
East Central Judicial District, Cass County
Thomas R. Olson
Parties' Statement of Issues
I. Whether the district court erred by denying Mr. Edwardson’s petition for post-conviction relief.
Whether the District Court erred in denying Defendant’s post-conviction application relief.
Edwardson appeals from the district court’s order denying his application for post-conviction relief.
The State filed a complaint charging Edwardson with failing to register as a sexual offender, in violation of N.D.C.C. § 12.1-32-15. After a preliminary hearing, Edwardson changed his plea to guilty. The court sentenced Edwardson to one year and one day of incarceration, suspending all but ninety days, one year of supervised probation, and registration as a sexual offender. Edwardson requested to withdraw his guilty plea because an email showed that the State unlawfully charged him of the crime. The district court denied Edwardson’s petition to withdraw his guilty plea.
On appeal, Edwardson argues that the district court erred in denying his petition for post-conviction relief for the following reasons: his trial attorney failed to properly represent him; new evidence shows the State unlawfully charged him with failing to register; and the district court failed to follow Rule 11.
