    I have a friend that plead guilty to a kidnapping charge in georgia about a year ago in order to receive a lesser sentence (judge told him to plea or he would receive life in prison). Recently, kidnapping was redefined. What can be done to have his case reopened to be looked at to see if his crime is qualified as kidnapping, and what are the steps he must go through? Could he go to court and have a trial?
