http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=47105 Judge Keenan PETITIONER MOVED to vacate, set aside or correct his conviction, claiming a violation of Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. Petitioner had pleaded guilty to a two-count superceding indictment charging him with conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to assault with a dangerous weapon. The indictment was brought in connection with petitioner’s membership in the “Head Crackers,” a street gang. Petitioner argued that because the court did not specifically inform him of any sanctions he might face if he violated a term of supervised release, he was not properly informed of the maximum possible penalty he could receive. The court denied the motion, ruling that the court’s omission of the consequences of a violation of a term of supervised release does not cross the threshold required to provide collateral relief. The court added that by not sentencing petitioner to any term of supervised release, the court cured any possible error and alleviated any possible prejudice to petitioner.
