Q: Once you accept a plea deal is it possible to appeal even though you waived your right to appeal?
If you didnt receive adequate representation by your court appointed attorney,wasnt fully aware of what this agreement meant,district attorneys office lost evidence,attorney was "too busy" to show up for my arraignment, court clerk alters my plea agreement after it was signed and judge approved it
A: You can file a motion to set aside the plea if it’s been less than thirty days. If it’s been longer than 30 days you can file a rule 32 based up ineffective assistance of counsel.
