Attorneys litigating the breach of a plea agreement might want to take a look at this new paper, Plea Agreements as Constitutional Contracts, by Professor Colin Miller of the University of South Carolina Law School. It highlights some interesting issues to raise on behalf of our clients–issues that could well make their way to SCOTUS. It seems Bill Tyroler was ahead of Professor Miller though. Years ago he did two posts regarding Wisconsin cases, in which he argued that plea agreements are “constitutional contracts” and should be construed as such. See Bill’s posts here and here.
