Time Limits to withdraw a Jacksonville Guilty Plea

As a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Attorney, I have had clients that entered guilty pleas or pleas of no contest when they were not represented by an attorney. Usually, this happens in first appearance court at their Jacksonville bond hearings in the Duval County jail. The Jacksonville criminal defendant does not understand his or her rights and enters the plea without understanding the consequences. If this occurs, the Jacksonville criminal defendant may withdraw his or her plea, but this must be done within thirty (30) days of the sentence being entered pursuant to Florida Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.170(l).
