Thanks. I agree with this also.
If I can find a decent attorney that will take payments (I'm not filthy rich), I will. The previous attorney really just took my money, and told me
to shut my mouth and finish probation.
I know that there are two methods to overturn a guilty plea, one being habeas corpus, the other is what I'd be trying for.
I do have a sincere amount of paperwork, medical and the like, that I could use to defend the position that I was coerced to plead guilty, denied my
basic human and higher constitutional rights, or alternatively that I was not in my right mind when I was asked to much such a plea(I genuinely
wasn't). (See the decision on torture, the final ruling being that any evidence obtained during is not reliable, I'm assuming a guilty plea as a
result would be met with the same decision, if I can prove it.).
I plan on doing all of the above, and should I fail, at this point having served my entire "term of detention/probation" and fulfilled all legal
requirements, I'll just accept a dismissal kicking and screaming.
Either way things go, I am determined that they do not go over passively.
Perhaps I should not speak that way, and set it in stone personally that I will accept nothing less than my guilty plea being overturned and the
evidence challenged in court... I'm on the fence about it.
I just wonder if I do succeed in overturning my plea, and the plaintiff completely fabricates evidence against me and it is upheld (somehow), if I can
still serve time in jail--even after finishing all of the terms of my probation.
Time & a good attorney will tell.
Thanks again for your input,
