Can a DA renege on a plea after the Defendant confesses, even if the Defendant is fully complying with the deal?
I don't think Troy 5.0 is a lawyer.
Who wants to give him admonishments?
Not an attorney...I am a police officer and I will remove myself from this site. Just thought I could get good information from the State's lawyers, regarding a legal issue.
Welcome to the TDCAA Bulletin Boards.

These forums are NOT a source of legal advice for citizens. Call the State Bar of Texas (800/204-2222) for information on seeking legal advice.
If you are a police officer, I would suggest you contact your local District Attorney regarding the matter. The law regarding when a prosecutor can withdraw a plea offer is complex regarding both the Code of Criminal Procedure and ethical considerations.
Thank you for your response.
