Under Connecticut General Statutes §54-lj(c), when a noncitizen defendant has not been properly advised that a guilty plea may have certain immigration and naturalization consequences, the court is mandated to vacate the judgment of conviction and permit withdrawal of the guilty plea if the defendant "not later than three years after the acceptance of the plea" files a motion and shows that the plea and conviction may have such a consequence.
