If you were convicted based on errors that took place during a criminal trial, or if you feel that your rights have been violated, you have the right to appeal. The appellate process allows defendants to challenge their convictions and seek a reevaluation of their cases in higher courts.

The Steps Followed in Criminal Appeals

It is important to understand that appealing a conviction requires adherence to specific procedures and timelines set forth by applicable statutes and regulations. Attorney Corey Young can guide you through this complicated process by assisting with:

  • Evaluation: In this initial phase, Attorney Young will thoroughly review all relevant documents from your trial, including transcripts and evidence presented during the proceedings. He will assess whether there are valid grounds for an appeal based on constitutional violations or errors made by the judge or jury.
  • Filing a notice of appeal: Once it is determined that your case has merit for appeal, Mr. Young will promptly prepare and file a notice of appeal with the appropriate court within the required timeframe.
  • Briefing stage: This phase involves the preparation of written briefs that present legal arguments supporting your position as to why errors during your criminal trial resulted in a wrongful conviction.
    • Appellant's Brief: Attorney Young will prepare and submit a brief outlining the specific errors made during your trial and how they affected the outcome.
    • Appellee's Brief: After filing the appellant's brief, Mr. Young will analyze the arguments made by opposing counsel in their appellee's brief. He will meticulously construct a response to rebut those arguments while presenting solid evidence to support your position.
  • Oral arguments: Depending on the rules and procedures followed in appellate courts, oral arguments may be scheduled. During this phase, Attorney Young will present persuasive oral arguments to the appellate court judges, highlighting key aspects of your case that support the claims made in the briefs.
  • Court decision: Upon completion of all required steps for filing an appeal, the appellate court judges will review all submitted documents and consider oral argument presentations, if any. Their evaluation will culminate in a written decision that either affirms or reverses your conviction based on identified trial errors or constitutional violations.
  • Possible outcomes: Depending on the decision of the higher court, a few different options may be available:
    • If your appeal is successful, and your conviction is overturned, your case may be dismissed outright. You may also be granted a new trial or other legal proceedings to ensure that you can receive a just outcome to your case.
    • If your appeal is unsuccessful, and the court chooses to affirm the original conviction or sentence, Attorney Young can help you explore additional options that may be available. Depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, you may be able to apply for a writ of habeas corpus or pursue other legal avenues that will help you obtain justice.
