How can you reject a guilty plea? I was a victim of the bank robbery as I was there. He is as guilty as can be. He was apprehended with the two hostages in the car with him. Yes, he definitely has mental issues, or maybe some drug issues, but on the day in question, April 2008, he knew exactly what he was doing. I witnessed it first hand.

Are all you "arm chair" judges really that ignorent? If the court took his plea....he would have been given time served, a slap on the wrist and turned back out on the streets!
Now he either has to accept a new plea with real time to serve or go to trial.

HUH? What do you mean he has to accept a new plea. This was his plea. From what I hear the plea was rejected because he has not been on medication.

First of all why does it take 3 years to even have your first court date. I am not an "arm chair" judge, I am a victim seeking justice. You were not there and do not know what we went through. He should spend the rest of his life in prison remembering everyday what he did to innocent human beings and the effect he made in our lives.

No reason for you to insinuate that we are ignorant. THis is an opinion based website and that is what I was giving. I was commenting on how I felt.

I swear sometimes I think people look for ways to really irritate someone. You could have just as easily explained the reasoning, leaving out the name calling.

No they couldn't because "eyeroll" is a police officer and "He knows best".

I'm willing to bet that with the psychological tests given, the judge wants to make sure he fully understands his plea. I don't think the judge is being easy; rather covering all the bases so the defendant has no leg to stand on for an appeal. Although in a plea rights to appeal are given up, a person with psychological deficiencies could claim that because he wasn't on his meds he didn't understand what he was doing and receive an appeal and possibly be released. I think the judge here is doing what he thnks need to be done to prevent thie guy from having grounds to appeal.

Eyeroll is right on the money with this. Its a rejection of the guy's plea. Why? Because in that plea or otherwise known as a "plea agreement", usually there are things such as:

Time served
Reduced Sentence if Attends "Whatever" Class
Reduced Sentence upon sueccessful completion of "whatever"
Probation after X amount of time served

Etc., Etc....ETC...

Basically alot of legal "deals" that are usually more beneficial to the defendant.

In other words..the judge is trying to see that justice is being upheld to it's maximum potential, and that is why the Judge felt to reject the plea, or in other words, the "Deal If I plead Guilty".

Hope that enlightens you Ladies and Gentlemen.
