Arnone v. Ebron

Petition for certiorari denied on April 1, 2013
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-924 Conn. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: (1) Whether, when counsel error causes the lapse of plea agreement more favorable to a criminal defendant than the outcome of the subsequent disposition, constitutional prejudice can be shown if the later disposition was nonetheless fitting in light of the defendant's crime and criminal background; and (2) whether, if constitutional prejudice can be shown by the loss of a more favorable plea agreement even if the ultimate decision was commensurate with the defendant's crime and background, the state's interest in punishment that fits the defendant's crime and character is a competing interest that should be taken into account in determining a remedy, pursuant to United States v. Morrison.
