Generally speaking, if both parties signed it and there is other evidence available of when it was signed and returned (emails, metadata, etc.) it is likely valid for 12 months from the date of signing.

Reducing a sentence on the grounds that the interested parties now want mercy is not going to be possible without...Read more »

As a former state prosecutor I have never heard of a sentence reduction based on the request of the victim through the court system. Your best bet would be for the victim to contact the department of probation parol and pardons to request a pardon from the governor.
I'm sorry for your loss. A probate attorney would be in the best position to assess the situation. You could contact one of the attorneys on this site, contact an attorney on your own, or repost with the categories Probate/Estate Planning added. Good luck

You may not have had as a part of the settlement an agreement that no judgment would be entered against you. (An attorney may have saved you from this issue.)...Read more »
