I was sentenced 2 years with no HYTA from the judge. At that time I withdrew my plea and said I wanted to go to trial. Prosecutor came back with an offer to change charges and give me HYTA. It’s been month since, Soon I’ll be going back to accept the plea. I ask my lawyer with the charges changing won’t that lower my guidelines for the next sentence date and will I get a lower sentence he stated I’m stuck with the 2 years the judge gave me originally. No matter if will be going to a new sentence date. Because that is what the prosecutor want.
These are questions for your attorney who has knowledge of the details. FYI, HYTA is a great deal if you keep out of trouble, and is normally 2 years. Good luck.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please review my efforts to assist by quickly and frankly responding to your question with AVVO. Also, please realize this PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. As the response is based on very limited information it MUST NOT be relied upon as the basis for action or inaction. If you are seeking legal advice which you can and should rely upon you will have to engage an attorney, provide all of the facts in detail and answer their questions. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. That may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will require payment for our services. Providing counsel and representation is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
