Beaumont Criminal Appeals Attorneys

Trusted Texas Representation for State and Federal Criminal Appeals

If you have been convicted of a crime in Beaumont, and you believe that errors were made during your trial, it may be necessary to pursue an appeal. The criminal appeals process can be complex and time-consuming, and it is important to work with a skilled attorney who understands the intricacies of appellate law. Corey Young is a dedicated criminal defense attorney with extensive experience handling appeals in Texas courts. He will guide you through the steps of the criminal appeals process and work tirelessly to protect your rights.

Understanding the Criminal Appeals Process

The purpose of a criminal appeal is to seek a higher court's review of legal errors made during the trial process. Unlike trials, which focus on determining guilt or innocence, appeals focus on determining whether legal errors occurred and whether they affected the outcome of a case. It is important to note that an appeal does not involve a re-litigation of the facts. Instead, it examines potential errors related to issues such as violations of constitutional rights or improper application of the law.

State-level appeals may address decisions made by criminal courts in Texas. Federal appeals may be appropriate in cases involving federal crimes or when appealing decisions by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. While each case is unique and may present its own challenges and opportunities for appellate success, the following steps are typically involved in the criminal appeals process:

  • Filing a Notice of Appeal: The first step in initiating an appeal is to file a notice with the appropriate appellate court within certain time limits following a conviction or a ruling by a lower court.
  • Preparing Briefs: Both sides—the appellant (the person appealing) and the state or federal government—will submit written briefs outlining their respective arguments regarding alleged errors that occurred at trial.
  • Oral Arguments: After reviewing these briefs, the appellate court may schedule sessions in which attorneys for both sides will present their cases before a panel of judges.
  • Appellate Court Decision: After receiving briefs and hearing oral arguments, the appellate court will review the record, the arguments made by both sides, and the relevant laws and statutes to make a decision. This decision may affirm the lower court's decision, reverse it entirely, or order a new trial.
  • Petition for Review (if applicable): If either party disagrees with the appellate court's decision, they may petition for review by higher courts, such as the Texas Supreme Court.
