Prosecutors want McCrory guilty plea withdrawal rejected in Epps case

Federal prosecutors Monday asked U.S. District Judge Henry T. Wingate to deny the move earlier this month by Cecil McCrory of Brandon. Wingate will hear the issue Wednesday.

Prosecutors reject McCrory’s claim that he wasn’t effectively aided by a lawyer. They say McCrory never before asserted innocence, there’s no proof his plea wasn’t voluntarily and knowingly made, and that he’s waited too long to change his mind.
