How long do I have to pull a plea before sentencing ?
1 attorney answer
Theoretically you can withdraw the plea anytime prior to sentencing unless there is prejudice to the Comminwealth. As a practical matter you should be having these conversations with your attorney. Each jurisdiction is a little different in how they handle plea withdrawals. Additionally, if you dont have a defense withdrawing the plea could have an adverse affect on your sentencing. There may be other options short of withdrawing your plea. A skilled attorney is a valuable asset in this situation as they should be able to explain all of your options and the ramifications of each.
