Can i overturn my conviction?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Riverside, CA

The victim in my case went to court and told the d.a. I had no part in what happened but i was told by my attorney to sign to misdemeanor battery. It happened a year ago. Is there still time to overturn it? And if so is it even possible?

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . No - since you had an attorney, the time frame for moving to withdraw your plea has run.

    Mr. Feasel is a former prosecutor in San Mateo County (CA) with over 10 years of criminal law experience. Nothing... more

    Answered . Mr. Feasel is correct. When did the victim go to the DA? Was it before your plea? Was it before your sentencing?
