The Appellate Court may have the answers you are looking for. Many believe that after conviction of a crime, even those you feel were not lawful, that you have no further options. Fortunately, that is not true. Many individuals with convictions are not aware that you have the right to fight and appeal your case. It is crucial to understand what options you have before accepting a guilty verdict.
Sometimes cases are mishandled, in which case filing an appeal will force the court to revisit the case and take a closer look at potentially overlooked details. An appellate court does not conduct a retrial or accept any new evidence. The purpose of an appeal is to revisit trial details with a new eye that ensures the trial court employed correct procedure and statutes.
