I accepted a plea offer. I don’t want to turn my self in to go. I have a mental illness and am terrified.
Would the plea be rescinded and I have to do prison time?
If you entered a plea and fail to turn yourself in, a warrant for your arrest will be issued and when you are picked up for failing to turn yourself in you are subject to additional time. PDC is generally for people who has violated their probation. A judge could sentence you to serve the balance of your probation. Turn yourself in, it's your best option in this case. If you feel you were coerced into taking a plea then you may need to contact a lawyer that can help you with possibly rescinding your plea (if applicable).
