United States of America Plaintiff - Appellee v. Conrad Eliot Dickson Defendant - Appellant

No. 16-3059

    Decided: February 09, 2017

Before WOLLMAN, MURPHY, and GRUENDER, Circuit Judges.

Conrad Dickson appeals after the district court 1 denied his petition for a writ of error coram nobis, in which he sought to vacate a prior conviction for which he had served his sentence. His petition asserted an ineffective-assistance claim and other claims that were essentially considered and resolved in a prior 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion. Following careful de novo review, we conclude that the district court properly denied Dickson's petition. See United States v. Camacho-Bordes, 94 F.3d 1168, 1173 (8th Cir. 1996) (reviewing de novo district court's legal conclusions in denying coram nobis relief); see also Chaidez v. United States, 133 S.Ct. 1103, 1108 & n.5 (2013) (discussing the contours of the Sixth Amendment right to counsel and labeling sex-offender registration as one of the “collateral consequences” of a conviction); George v. Black, 732 F.2d 108, 110 (8th Cir. 1984) (determining that accused need only be informed of direct consequences of guilty plea); Azzone v. United States, 341 F.2d 417, 418-19 (8th Cir. 1965) (per curiam) (noting that, if sentence has been served, individual may file petition for writ of error coram nobis in attempt to vacate prior conviction, while also holding that a petitioner is not entitled to review of issues that were considered and resolved in a prior § 2255 motion). Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
