Q. If you state you want to take it to trial. When is it to late to change your mind. My nephew goes to trial next month.
A: Technically a person can change his/her plea at any time before the jury returns a verdict. However, different courts may have different ways of doing things. Some courts may deem any offer from the State as revoked if not accepted before setting a case for trial. To avoid this, it may be necessary to have the Judge and State Attorney put on the record that the offer will remain open and until when. This is why it is important to have an attorney who is familiar with the local custom as well as the individual judge involved!
Q. I was sentenced to 10 years for a violation of probation and 10 years on a new law violation ran concurrent.
A: Unfortunately, no. You will receive credit for the six years time you served - only on the related case. You will receive credit on the new case for any time you were in jail pending the resolution. Concurrent means the sentences runs together at the same time. It does not mean that the sentences will END at the same time. Unless the resolution spelled out that the sentences would be "coterminous," they will end at different time. The specifics should be in your sentencing documents. Speak to your attorney about it.
Q. What happens if your criminal conviction is overturned and the statute of limitations has expired. Can you be retried?
A: The Statute of Limitations is satisfied when the charge is filed. The case does not need to be completed, it just has to be brought and any warrant executed or charge filed.
