Wilder v. State (MLW No. /Case No. ED - 14 pages) Where a defendant entered Alford pleas to three charges in an attempted rape and assault case and the defendant later sought to withdraw his pleas, the defendant's failure to appeal an order denying his motion to withdraw his guilty plea precluded him from raising that issue in a post-conviction.
