Once a person is convicted of a criminal offense, they may feel like that is the end of the road and their life has been turned upside down. But that is not always the case. The law allows each person convicted at trial to continue to fight their conviction after the jury’s verdict.
If errors were made during your trial; if evidence was introduced that should not have been; or if there was not sufficient evidence to sustain your conviction, an appeals court may overturn the jury’s verdict. There are many post-conviction forms of relief that you may be entitled to, including:
- Motion for New Trial
- Direct Appeal
- Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus
To determine if you have grounds to appeal your conviction, or what form of relief you are entitled to, you need a knowledgeable and hardworking attorney on your side. If you have been convicted of a crime and want to know your options, please contact us at 210-540-3449, or by email, to set up a free initial consultation.
