Hello,

The plea can stand because it was a negotiated plea you wished to take and the judge does not have to allocute you as to everything you'd already admitted to. If you don't believe you were fully informed about what you were pleading to, however, you can speak to your lawyer about that. If he can't address your concerns to your satisfaction and that changes your mind about taking the plea, you can tell him to try to get your plea back on the felony on your sentencing date or to have the judge reallocute you on the plea so that you are sure that you know precisely what you're pleading to.
