An Overview Of The Appellate Process
If you have been convicted of a crime, your case is not necessarily over. America’s court systems have a mechanism in place to have your case reviewed by a higher court to determine if any error occurred before, during or after the trial. Appeals are necessary to correct wrongful convictions, sentencing errors or legal errors during trials. However, an appeal is time-sensitive, so it is important you contact The Atkins Firm, P.C., right away.
Should the Court of Criminal Appeals rule against you, your case may be eligible for consideration by the Alabama Supreme Court, the United States Supreme Court or another federal court depending on the issues and circumstances surrounding your case.
