How the Appeals Process Works
Unfortunately, the court system does make mistakes, and these mistakes can lead to unjust convictions. When this happens, you have the option of filing an appeal with a higher court, such as the California Supreme court. If you go this route, you must act quickly as you have a limited amount of time after your conviction to file the appeal. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may have between 30 and 180 days to file.
You may have grounds to file an appeal if:
- Evidence was allowed when it should not have been
- Evidence was incorrectly withheld or suppressed
- The sentence handed down by the court is not appropriate for the crime
- There was misconduct on the part of the prosecution during your trial
- The jury was confused, or jury instructions were unclear, and your judgment was affected
- Mistakes in the interpretation of the law negatively affected the outcome of your case
- Your constitutional rights were violated during the trial
Criminal convictions can severely impact your life. It is worth speaking with a knowledgeable Los Angeles appeals lawyer to discuss your options. The appeals process can give you a second chance to try your case, receive a fair judgment, and avoid jail time.
We Are There for You Post-Conviction
