Q: Sister w/brain tumor plead guilty to battery (often confused, no speech Is this even legal? See addendum below
+ a week after pleading her ex filed a 'motion to set aside' injunction, in it he admitted that he was up in her face for 2hrs screaming/begging/demanding her to "Hit me, B*tch".
In light of his recent admission and the fact that she doesn't even know the date half of the time, does she have any grounds to appeal?
In order to take a plea there is a verbal ok nquiry by the judge. If she can't speak it sounds doubtful that a plea could have been taken.
Essentially it sounds like she would need to seek to have her plea withdrawn.
If she wants it she needs an attorney who represents her.
