Legal Question

Asked on: 8/07/13, 11:23 am

My husband was sentenced to life suspend all but 40 years with 2 years probation 1st 20 no parole. At his plea hearing the lawyer advised him that they wasnt going to oppose a sentence of life in his case but instead would give him lifes suspend all but 40 years. The lawyer misadvised him about his sentence because the total term that a judge sets is a imposed sentence regardless of how much of that term is suspended and despite all it's wording his sentence has all the attributes of life. He wants to withdraw his guilty plea based on the fact that he was misinformed of the consequences of his sentence. He is serving time in maryland so what can we do to get him back in court
