Q. High Risk for severe Covid, DA is recommending 6 years 8 months for 9 felony charges yet co-def got summery probation
A: If you entered a plea at a time when you were not thinking clearly due to the stroke, you might want to have your plea withdrawn. Discuss this with your lawyer. If it was a 'good deal', and there are no problems of proof,for the DA, you may not want to. You might be looking at more time than your co-defendant because of a past record? Without a prior strike, the charges look like a county jail prison sentence, under 1170 (h), that typically has a portion of the sentence served on mandatory supervision.
