What is a criminal appeal?

The appeal is a process that gives defendants a chance to challenge a case decision and allow a higher appellate court review the case. The appeal gives unfairly-sentenced defendants a chance to have their rights fairly represented. With a successful appeal, you may have a chance to turn an unfavorable criminal conviction into reduced charges, or even have your case dismissed entirely.

How does the appeal process work?

Appeal may be filed in all kinds of instances, including:

  • If your attorney made a mistake that deprived you of adequate assistance of counsel.
  • If a prosecutor made an error or engaged in misconduct during the trial
  • If the court permitted the jury to hear evidence that should have been excluded
  • If the court excluded evidence that should have been heard by the jury

A court such as the California Supreme Court or a Federal Circuit Court of Appeals may review the reason for your appeal and determine whether the appeal is valid. If any of the above factors may have played a role in your case, or you have even the slightest reason to believe you may be eligible for an appeal, you should get in touch with our Riverside criminal defense attorney. We may help you assess the situation of your case and determine a strong course of legal action to pursue.
