Criminal procedure — Writ of error coram nobis — Involuntary guilty plea
After the Circuit Court for Montgomery County denied his petition for a writ of error coram nobis, Charles Aboke, appellant, filed this appeal.
An indictment filed on January 4, 2007, charged Aboke with distribution of crack cocaine, a felony offense for which a maximum sentence of twenty years’ imprisonment and a $25,000 fine could be imposed. See §§ 5-602 & 5-608 of the Criminal Law Article of the Maryland Code (2002 Repl. Vol.). Aboke subsequently entered into a plea agreement with the State in which he agreed to plead guilty to the lesser charge of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, a misdemeanor offense, and, in exchange, the State agreed to recommend a suspended sentence of thirty days’ imprisonment and a $500 fine, to be followed by a one- year period of unsupervised probation. The court agreed to impose the recommended sentence.
