I was told by my court appointed atty. at the time that if i pleaded guilty i'd get def.probation and i could change my plea to not guilty within 90 days,and it was the only way i'd get a hearing.And they would probably dismiss the charge. The alledged victim recanted and told the truth even on the stand at my probation revocation hearing.Still the sit in judge from another county gave me two years. I feel i got railroaded. Do i have any chance here?
You can't get it overturned now. Why did you wait for TWELVE YEARS? The appeal times have all expired years ago.
You have only 30 days to file a notice of appeal. 12 years is far too long.

I believe your question is 12 years too late. Probably not much you can do at this point. Appeals and such have strict time deadlines. What took so long? Your chances of accomplishing anything are slim to none and Slim just left the building. Sounds like you admitted guilt--which not only makes no sense when one protests their innocence, but also severely limits your options. Game over.
