    Default Can an Accepted Plea Agreement Be Overturned

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Arizona - I signed a plea agreement that was accepted by the judge. There were terms not included that my public defender advised needed to be brought up during sentencing. I am now finding out that these terms should have been included in the agreement. Is there any way the plea can be taken back?

    Where are we in the process? You could have AT SENTENCING brought up the issues and cancelled the plea then and there if there were discrepancies. Once you accepted the sentence in court, it's most likely too late. What does the lawyer say?

    Default Re: Can a Accepted Plea Agreement Be Overturned

    Thank you for your reply. I am awaiting sentencing. The lawyer says that he will bring it up during my sentencing (which is 30 days from now). So, in other words, since I haven't been sentenced yet, it's not too late? I was under the impression that once the plea was signed and accepted by the judge that there was nothing that could be done.
