Sex Crime Appeals in Michigan Post-Conviction Cases
If you have been convicted of a sex crime and have already been denied a new trial, contact Grabel & Associates to find out more about your post-conviction options. Appealing your case will allow you to fight for a better result in a new court, and working with an experienced appeals attorney is critical to any post-conviction case.
Unlike a retrial, appellate cases do not allow for new evidence, unless it meets strict guidelines. Normally, an appeal relies on court records that will determine if the initial decision was legally sound. If your attorney failed to properly represent your best interests in your case, hiring a skilled sex crime appeals lawyer could be what it takes to overcome wrongful conviction or excessive penalties.
If you want to seek an appeal, you need to speak with an appeals attorney who can guide you through the decision to appeal your case, and represent you throughout the appellate process. You will then file a Claim of Appeal, and submit the necessary documents and fees required by the court. Grabel & Associates can help you determine the best steps to take in your post-conviction case, and our knowledgeable attorneys will help you decide how to handle your fight for justice.
What Does a Criminal Appeal in Michigan Do?
Sex crime appeals are extremely complex, and it is very tough to win an appeal, especially if you fail to hire the best possible attorney. If the appellate court finds there were mistakes made in your case, which could include insufficient evidence, ineffective counsel, or use of unlawful evidence, there are multiple outcomes possible. You could have your conviction reversed and rendered, clearing you of charges as well as retrial. You could also have your conviction reversed and a new trial ordered, or you can have parts of your conviction set aside. Working with an attorney will help you decide if a successful appeal is a possibility in your sex offense case, and our lawyers have the experience needed to help you determine the legal issues that will affect your case.Our Approach to Sex Crime Appeals
