Criminal Case Appeals

An appeal differs from a trial in that a state or federal appellate court will not be hearing new evidence or retrying your case. The court will only be looking to see if any errors were made in the original trial that would invalidate its findings. Therefore, your appellate attorney will have to exhaustively review the lower court record to uncover errors which would be grounds for appealing the decision.

An appellate lawyer must be skilled at this review, at writing detailed briefs, and making convincing oral arguments before an appellate court judge.

Errors may consist of such things as:

  • Insufficient evidence
  • Sentencing errors that violate state or federal guidelines
  • Improper search and seizure
  • Illegally processed evidence
  • Excessive sentence in relation to the crime

An appellate court has certain standards of review that it will apply to determine if such errors occurred.

If it determines that errors did occur, the appellate court can:

  • Throw out a lower court decision
  • Reverse a lower court decision (which would then be a decision for the appealing party)
  • Reverse certain issues
  • Affirm certain issues
  • Send back (remand) some issues to the lower court
