CAN I CHANGE MY PLEA FROM “GUILTY” TO “NOT GUILTY” IN NEVADA?

NRS 170.165 deals with motions to withdraw a plea in Nevada. Often people in custody in Nevada will enter in a plea in order to get out of jail even if the plea is not in their long-term best interest. Then they will try to withdraw the plea down the line, but judges rarely allow pleas to be withdrawn.

“In November, Muskogee County District Judge Mike Norman stipulated that 17-year-old Tyler Alred should attend church regularly for 10 years as a requirement to avoid a prison sentence, the Tulsa World reported. The teen admitted to police he had been drinking in the Dec. 3, 2011, crash that killed his 16-year-old passenger and friend, John Luke Dum, according to the newspaper.

The ACLU of Oklahoma filed a complaint with state judicial misconduct authorities Tuesday alleging Norman’s ruling disregarded religious liberties in the federal and state constitutions.”*

The ACLU has filed a complaint against District Judge Mike Norman for sentencing a teen in a manslaughter case to church. Judge Norman stands by his sentence, but is it a fair punishment? What if the case had been tried in another state, and what if the teen had been a different religion? Is there any legal precedent to this? Ana Kasparian, Kim Horcher (Host, Nerd Alert), and Jayar Jackson discuss the ramifications of the judge’s decision and what he could have done instead.
