Date Published:

Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, David Porter, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Vaitheswaran, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (9 pages)

            Mayual Anyuon appeals the district court’s grant of summary disposition to the State on his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Anyuon claims he received ineffective assistance because defense counsel did not adequately explain the immigration consequences of his guilty plea.  We determine there is a genuine issue of material fact on this issue and conclude summary disposition was inappropriate.  We reverse the decision of the district court and remand for further proceedings.
