Appeals are a difficult process, and when combined with a plea withdrawal they can have nightmarish results. It seems that Mr. Montermini has experienced that trouble first hand. When withdrawing a plea, make sure you are well aware of the possible outcomes before proceeding.
A11-1543 State of Minnesota, vs. Fabrizio Montermini,
Ramsey County District Court,
A criminal defendant who pleads guilty to multiple offenses under a plea agreement in which the defendant acknowledges that the agreement will be rescinded if the plea is withdrawn on appeal and the defendant may be reprosecuted as if there had been no plea of guilty and no plea agreement, waives the constitutional protection against double jeopardy as to all charged offenses by successfully appealing one or more of the guilty pleas.
