Description:

In the case of Turner v. State, the district court reversed the trial court's denial of the defendant's 3.850 motion.

The district court reversed the trial court's order summarily denying defendant's motion for postconviction relief after the defendant's convictions on 3 counts: DUI manslaughter (impairment), DUI manslaughter (unlawful blood alcohol level), and vehicular homicide. Defendant entered a plea subsequent to being inaccurately advised he might face up to 45 years of incarceration (15 years for each count running consecutively) instead of the maximum of fifteen years. The erroneous information constituted an involuntary plea.
