Judge DeGuilio: Change of Plea Hearing

After a Petition to Enter a Plea of Guilty or a Notice of Intent to Plead Guilty is filed, the Court will refer the case to Magistrate Judge Michael G. Gotsch to conduct a change of plea hearing, with the consent of the parties. For those times when a change of plea is filed within a few days of trial, the District Court Judge will make a determination whether he will refer the plea to the Magistrate Judge or conduct the plea hearing himself. A sentencing date is set at the change of plea hearing.
