GUY PHILLIPE CAN HE APPEAL : NO HE LOST HIS RIGHT AFTER ENTERING HIS GUILTY PLEA.

Mr Phillipe can only appeal his sentence if only he was sentenced over the maximum allowed.

—————————————————————————————————————-

Did you plead guilty after losing a motion to keep evidence out of trial? Your lawyer might have crafted your plea bargain to preserve your right to appeal just that issue.

If you choose to give up your right to trial in a criminal case and enter a guilty plea, you will be giving up not only a trial but also, in most instances, the right to appeal any legal or factual issues to a higher court. Once you have entered a guilty plea, the judge will convict you based on your own admissions, and you will ordinarily have no grounds to undo that conviction in a court of appeals. You may, however, be able to appeal your sentence, as long as you have not given up that right in any plea deal with the prosecution. (For more information on appealing a sentence, see Appealing a Criminal Sentence.)
