You can file with the court to re-open the case. The actual re-opening is very difficult because you told the judge you wanted to plead guilty because you were guilty and you were not being pressured and had time to speak with your attorney. What is your argument for 'undoing the plea and sentence' ? Ed Dimon 732-797-1600
