I have no money and could not get the Public Defender to return my calls. So, with the previous advise given, I did alot of on line research and put together a motion to vacate my previous guilty plea. When I went to court, I recieved a court date for next month. I dont know if he will grant my motion or not but, either way, what happens next? If it is denied, will I be sent to jail? For how long? Is there anything else I can do? I am just really scared.
Criminal law establishes the classifications of crimes, how guilt or innocence is determined, and the types of punishment or rehabilitation that may be imposed.
Criminal charges are formal accusations in court that someone has committed a crime. Criminal charges have many classifications and degrees of severity.
