Citation
Case Number: 
2012 IL App (2d) 110666
Decision Date: 
November 6, 2012
District: 
2d Dist.
Division/County: 
Winnebago Co.
Justice: 
HUDSON
Holding: 
Affirmed.
Court denied Defendant's motion to withdraw his plea to unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle. One PD prepared and filed motion to withdraw plea, and Rule 604(d) certificate, and continued to represent Defendant throughout proceedings; additional PD later assisting with representation was not required to file new 604(d) certificate. Certificate's language that she consulted with Defendant by mail "and/or" in person is not deficient; no requirement that counsel must specify precisely type of communication with Defendant. (BIRKETT, concurring; JORGENSEN, specially concurring.)
