Back in March, Green filed a motion to withdraw his blind guilty plea because the plea was not knowing/intelligently/voluntarily made, he didn't understand what 85 percent crime meant, didn't know what the word guilty meant and his attorney encouraged him to plea, the DA's office said at the time.

Green was arrested back in October 2017 for shooting and killing Broken Arrow middle school teacher Shane Anderson in front of his two daughters and raping an 81-year-old woman.
