GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) A man awaiting sentencing for shooting a Great Falls man to death last September is asking District Judge John Kutzman if he can get a new attorney, withdraw his guilty plea and get a second opinion on a psychiatric evaluation.
On Monday, Miesmer filed a handwritten request to speak with Kutzman about withdrawing his plea. Miesmer did not have a plea agreement.
Miesmer’s attorneys filed a motion Tuesday to vacate the June 3 sentencing hearing, saying one of his public defenders has a scheduling conflict.
