Guilty Pleas – Required Knowledge — Elements — Written Questionnaire Supplying Missing Information

State v. George R. Bollig, 2000 WI 6, 232 Wis. 2d 561, 605 N.W.2d 199, affirming State v. Bollig, 224 Wis.2d 621, 593 N.W.2d 67 (Ct. App. 1999)
For Bollig: Thomas E. Knothe, Collins, Quillin & Knothe, Ltd.

Issue: Whether the trial court’s failure to advise the defendant of an element during the plea colloquy entitled him to withdraw the plea.

Holding: The plea colloquy was deficient, because an element was omitted, but the written questionnaire’s inclusion of this element, along with Bollig’s express acknowledgement of the elements contained in the questionnaire, cured this defect.
