This cause is before this Court on an appeal from the Court of Record from Polk County. The record indicates that the Defendant Henry Grady Asbey was indicted by the Grand Jury of Polk County for second degree murder and that the indictment was transferred to said Criminal Court of Record. On the 24th day of May, 1956 the County Solicitor filed an Information charging the Defendant with second degree murder. In the forenoon of June 4, 1956 the defendant was arraigned, pled guilty and in the afternoon of the same day was sentenced to serve thirty years in the State Prison. On June 25, 1956 D. C. Laird, as attorney for the defendant, filed a motion asking that the defendant be allowed to withdraw his plea of guilty and enter a plea of not guilty to the charge. The motion alleged that prior to the filing of the Information and the entry of the plea of guilty, the defendant had employed Mr. Laird to represent him in this case. That the attorney was not present at the arraignment and that the accused did not advise the Court that he had employed counsel because he was not familiar with court procedure, was confused, ignorant and afraid, and that counsel had no knowledge of the fact that the Information had been filed or the arraignment was to be on that date. At the hearing of the Motion, defendant moved the Court to permit him to amend the Motion to allege that he was not guilty of the offense and desired a trial by jury. The Court denied the application to amend and overruled the Motion. This Motion was not signed or sworn to by the defendant, but was both signed and sworn to by D. C. Laird, the attorney. At the hearing upon the Motion some testimony was taken from which it appeared that the defendant was a Negro, 35 years of age, with little or no education and entirely ignorant of court procedure and his Constitutional rights, having never been in court before; that the death of Sally Mae Asbey, the person who was alleged to have been killed, was accidental and that when he was arraigned he did not understand and thought that he had already been convicted by the Grand Jury. Section 909.13, F.S.A., reads as follows:
