Can You Appeal Your Criminal Verdict?
Criminal courts sometimes convict innocent people. When this occurs, the path to justice is an appeal. At The Garber Law Firm, P.C., our lawyers can help you navigate the process. Based in Marietta, we assist clients throughout the United States.
Appealing A Fraud Conviction
If you were convicted of fraud, drug trafficking, or any other crime, it does not necessarily mean you were guilty. Some convictions are, in fact, the result of human error. Recognizing this, the court system has a process for challenging verdicts.
A common misconception is that with an appeal comes a new trial. However, it is more accurate to say an appeal is a review of your original trial. The purpose is to discover whether any procedural mistakes were made that compromised the integrity of the court’s decision.
Our attorneys are adept at discovering and presenting evidence that shows how a mistake led to one’s conviction. Errors that serve as grounds for an appeal include:
- The judge wrongfully denied a motion to suppress evidence
- The attorney who represented you made a critical mistake
- The judge did not allow your attorney to present certain evidence in your favor
- Other procedural errors
