NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -A hearing this week will go over a man’s effort to withdraw a guilty plea.
The plea is related to the 2016 shooting of Jefferson Parish Deputy Stephen Arnold.
Lawyers for Jarvis Hardy said that changes in federal law could mean a lower minimum sentence.
He recently moved to withdraw a drug and firearm guilty plea, which was part of a deal that included dropping an attempted murder charge and a major firearms charge.
Prosecutors argued Friday that Hardy made the plea knowingly and it should stand.
A hearing is set for Thursday.
