Justia Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Opinion Summaries

Ex parte Broussard

By
Kenneth Broussard pleaded guilty to delivery of cocaine and was sentenced to eight months’ imprisonment. Laboratory tests later determined that Broussard possessed methamphetamine. In his habeas corpus application, Broussard alleged that his plea was involuntary, and as a result, violated due process because the test results show he did not possess cocaine. Because at the time of the plea Broussard had sufficient awareness of the law in relation to the facts, the Court of Criminal Appeals held that his plea was voluntary and intelligent.
