In the news, the prosecutors for Michael Flynn recently withdrew their case for the reasons stated in this court brief.
However, Flynn has already pleaded guilty as mentioned several times in the brief, though he has been seeking to withdraw this plea:
Mr. Flynn previously pleaded guilty to making false statements. See Def’s Plea Agreement, ECF Nos. 3-4.
Despite already pleading guilty, and a withdrawl of the prosecution, what decisions is the Judge legally allowed to make against (or for) the defendant at this point?
