Best Answer

A person who is innocent should never plead guilty or Nolo Contendre or make a deal with the proscecution. Once a plea bargain has been accepted the defendant loses all rights to appeal. Even probation indicates the person has been convicted of a crime and has a criminal record and can create problems throughout one's life. This might be a time for a truly innocent defendant to consider filing a motion that he or she was not adequately represented by legal counsel.
