That can be tricky. Any time that you enter a plea, typically you waive your right to appeal any issue that the judge or court has decided on, so if there was a motion to suppress that got denied, you’re waiving your right to appeal if you entered that plea. However, a lot of times, it’s about assessing the risk. What am I looking at if convicted of the crime versus what I might be able to just solidly get and do with this plea offer. So some of that is risk assessment based on the particular facts of that case, and for that, you probably need to go and at least consult with an attorney or hire an attorney or talk to the attorney if you’ve been appointed one, and discuss those at length with them before deciding to take any plea bargain.
