I want to file motion to withdraw plea of no contest ,

for operating a vehicle without a Motor Carrier of Property permit;34501.12(F) Misdemeanor Violation. Court: San Luis Obispo, CA

On December 22, 2010, I appeared for hearing with my attorney and DA, Attorney miss represented me, miss informed me, about my plea, He told me to initial and signed a document, didn’t explain me, what I signed, after I signed document then attorney wrote something on document didn’t explain me, nothing about no contest plea.

Attorney lied and fraud me, told me just pay the fine and be done with it, to pay fine for amount of $ 1500. And didn’t tell me about no contest, didn’t explain the charges. And attorney tried to intimidate me, all the time, he said, they will take me to jail.

When I appeared in front of Judge, was different story, was $5000 fine, 2 years probation, to be in compliance. I was shocked when heard, because at that time I didn’t feel well, and I was under medication for PROZAC.

Because I didn’t understand the charges no contest, I mistaken with not guilty. I agreed in front of judge. After 4 days I contacted court Clerk, and told I want to file motion to withdraw plea of no contest, The Clerk told me, the attorney who represented me have to file motion to court. I contacted my attorney and told him to file motion, Attorney doesn’t file motion because conflict of interest. Attorney filed motion to withdraw as counsel, Temporally I will be represented by Public defender, until find new Attorney.

I have hearing, case is continued to Feb 22, 8:30 in the same courtroom as before. You are ordered to appear at that time. The judge issued a bench warrant in the amount of 15,000 and held it until the 22nd. There is no warrant if you show on that date.

Expert:  CrimDefense replied 3 years ago.
There needs to be a legal basis to vacate the plea. Based upon the facts you stated there could be one for ineffective assistance of counsel. If you were mislead by your attorney, did not understand what you were doing as a result of the medication and were forced to take the plea without being explained your other options, you could possible have an opportunity. However, you would likely have to go to trial and fight this. You would not going to vacate the plea, only to take another plea deal with the same penalties.
