I am looking for reasons to petition a writ of coram nobis. During my trial, there was an agreement with the police that was not honor in the end. The police told there side and I was not able to tell my side to have it on record. My lawyer called upon me to testify. The judge said it was not necessary. The end results was a plea bargain, which I was in duress to take because of the high volumes of stress, trauma, distrust, and money that was put into the case. As a student, this has cause me to change my major and has impacted me on withholding jobs and titles.
Now you've reposted with more details, but this situation won't be resolved by a quick question & answer online. An attorney is going to have to review the transcripts and other documents in your case to assess this fully.
I don't know why they didn't allow you to testify - the transcript should clear that up, but I would NOT suggest taking on this project yourself.
The above answer is for general information only and is based on the information you posted. Every case is fact dependent, so to get a thorough analysis of your situation, you will need to consult face to face with an attorney licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where the incident took place. Do not conclusively rely on any information posted online when deciding what to do about your case.
Agree with Mr. Dane completely. This is far too complicated to be treated as a DIY project like building a birdhouse at Home Depot on Saturday morning. Retain experience appellate counsel to review the record or be doomed to fail. I'm sorry, but that's the stark reality. In the end, it may be too little too late.
