Mar. 9, 2022 – People v. Diaz (2nd Dist., Div. 5, B307726)

The Court of Appeal affirms the trial court’s denial of appellant’s motion to vacate conviction pursuant to PC 1473.7(a)(1), where appellant’s declarations that his attorney did not advise him of the immigration consequences of his plea were not credible, and the record demonstrated that he could not have bargained to maintain legal status.
