Withdrawal of a Guilty Plea

Withdrawal of a Guilty Plea

In certain circumstances a person can withdraw a guilty plea and get that final disposition set aside and try to get a different result on their case. This is possible in most cases, however it is only something that can be more easily accomplished in certain unique cases.

For example, If a person has already pleaded guilty to certain drug charges, such as marijuana possession or possession of drug paraphernaila, then it may be possible for an attorney to withdraw that person's guilty plea and negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecutor to have the drug charges reduced to a lesser offense.

The same may be true if a person has pleaded guilty to a traffic offense. If a person has pleaded guilty to a moving violation and had points added to their license they may be able to hire an attorney and withdraw the guilty plea and get the moving violation amended to a non-moving violation so that they will not have points added to their driving record.

However, in both types of situations mentioned above, if too much time has passed since the person has pleaded guilty, or if the person was represented by an attorney when they pleaded guilty then the judge of the court may not allow for the withdraw of the guilty plea.

Whatever your circumstances are, this is the man to see in St. Louis I'm obviously a criminal (even if I'm innocent), otherwise why would I know Brent? Even if there's that rare chance you're "innocent"... Whatever your circumstances are, this is the man to see in St. Louis. My case was very high profile and if Brent hadn't been in my corner I would have been a very old man if and/or when I was released from incarceration. 10+ felonies and I actually walked out of the courtroom. If you're Googling and came across this then you're done! Stop shopping around; don't buy the hype printed in magazines that a publicist promotes and those once great attorneys pay for. Spend your money on someone that's actually there for you. My case(s) have been years in the making. Brent respected me and my family. He stood up and spoke up when I was too afraid to. If you're reading this, then I truly feel your pain. Weather it's for yourself or someone you love and you're panicking and don't know what to do... It's an awful feeling. Before you say yes to any of the letters in the mail or the many other ways attorneys attack you with "you need me, I'm the best"... Talk to Brent and save your butt.
