Failure to Warn Client of Loss of Pension

In a recent Superior Court of Pennsylvania case, Commonwealth v. Abraham, 996 A2d 1090 (Pa. Super. 2010), the Court held that the failure of counsel to advise his client that a direct consequence of entering a guilty plea to Indecent Assault with a female student would be the forfeiture of his vested pension rights was ineffective assistance of counsel.  The lesson we learn is that whenever a client pleads to any criminal offense, we are obligated to make certain that the client understands all of the consequences of the plea.  The court makes a distinction between a direct consequence and a collateral consequence.
