OXFORD — A Jacksonville, Fla., man, who pleaded guilty in October to aggravated DUI, now says he didn’t know what he was doing and wants the Mississippi Supreme Court to overturn his conviction.
Dalton Trigg was charged in a 2011 accident in which a woman was injured. He was sentenced in April to 10 years in prison with six years suspended and four to serve.
The Oxford Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/bxMH7X ) that Trigg’s new attorney filed an appeal on May 6 with the Supreme Court. In it, Trigg says he also didn’t get good advice from his former attorney.
Court documents show a judge asked Trigg during the plea hearing if Trigg was satisfied with his attorney and whether he knew the consequences of pleading guilty. Trigg said yes to each question.
