Sometimes entering a “guilty” or “no contest” plea seems like the best way to resolve your case. With plea bargains, entering a guilty or no contest plea may actually appear to reduce your penalties. At times, people will discover that entering a guilty plea was not the best decision, and luckily this is one choice that you will have a chance at fixing. Under certain circumstances, a person can withdraw a guilty plea, even if it has been formally entered. The actions that an individual can take to withdraw a guilty plea depend on how much time has passed since the plea was made. There is likely to be a short period of time during which a defendant may move to withdraw their guilty plea, and after that, they may be able to appeal or to seek state and federal post-conviction relief. It is important to know that in some cases, withdrawing a plea could actually hurt a person and result in a greater punishment—in those cases a plea should not be withdrawn. If you think you have made the wrong choice in entering a guilty plea, you should consult an experienced lawyer at our firm about the possibility of withdrawing it.
