Those who are found guilty after a trial can challenge a conviction and appeal the court’s decision. Although there are several means to challenge a conviction, parties who want to appeal must follow strict guidelines.
Georgia laws allow individuals to appeal directly to a higher court, file a motion for a new trial, motion to withdraw a plea, or motion to modify the sentence in a Georgia court. Different rules apply for appeals in federal courts. Conklin Law Firm can help you file proper documents in time, so you don’t lose your right to appeal.
If your appeal has been denied, you still have options. If the appellate court affirms the conviction, a Habeas Corpus petition can be filed. A Writ of Habeas Corpus is a petition for a court to review the circumstances of the defendant’s incarceration. It’s limited to constitutional issues, ranging from ineffective assistance of counsel to illegal search and seizure.
Since the first step is filing a petition with a federal court, you’ll need an appellate lawyer with specific knowledge of the procedures involved in this practice. Tyler Conklin is one of them.
