Summary:

The Florida Supreme Court's Criminal Court Steering Committee and the Subcommittee on Postconviction Relief have proposed changes to various rules dealing with postconviction proceedings. For example, the proposals would change rules dealing with when and how defendants can withdraw pleas or ask for corrections to their credits for jail time. The proposals would also change filing requirements and deadlines in postconviction challenges.
