Request to Withdraw Guilty Plea in Crawford County Murder Case Denied
A Crawford County Court of Common Pleas Judge has dismissed the request by a man serving life in prison for murder to withdraw his guilty plea.
Adam Greenlee claimed his guilty plea to first-degree murder was "unlawfully induced" because his attorney failed to present evidence, according to District Attorney Francis Schultz.
Investigators said Greenlee admitted to killing Patrick Kozminski at the GNC store in Vernon Township on Nov. 30, 2017.
Schultz said the judge explained all of the necessary aspects of the law and all of the rights that Greenlee was giving up when the plea was entered. The judge allowed Schultz to question Greenlee about what happened before, during and after Kozminski's killing, which Schultz said created the factual foundation for Greenlee's plea.
