People v. Clermont, 166

Defendant's conviction of criminal possession of a weapon in the second and third degrees is remanded to the lower court for further proceedings, where: 1) multiple errors by defendant's attorney in relation to defendant's suppression application establish that defendant was not afforded meaningful representation at a critical stage of this prosecution; and 2) relief is therefore appropriate under the meaningful representation standard, which does not invariably require a strict showing of prejudice.
