JOSE VIERA-ALVARENGA v. STATE OF MARYLAND (access required)

Jose Viera-Alvarenga appeals from the denial of his petition for a writ of error coram nobis by the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. He presents a single issue for our review: Whether the circuit court erred in denying his petition without a hearing in light of his allegation that his defense counsel had not informed him of the precise immigration consequences of pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery. For the reasons that follow, we affirm.
