Reasons to Appeal a Conviction
In Georgia there are two types of appeals: a direct appeal and a post-conviction appeal. A direct appeal, the more traditional form appeal, is filed with next higher court from the previous ruling court. A post-conviction appeal is filed with the same court that tried the original case.
There are many legitimate reasons for an individual to appeal a conviction, such as:
- Important facts or convincing evidence was not submitted in court
- Prosecution or the court failed to follow the laws that govern DUI cases
- Convicted individual's previous attorney did not follow standard procedure
- Convicted individual's previous attorney did not provide proper legal counsel
- There were legal or procedural errors during the trial
How to Make an Appeal
If you plan to file an appeal, you must act quickly because you have a limited amount of time. To begin the appellate process you must file a petition with the appropriate court. Once you have filed the petition, the appellate court will review the original court files and decide whether or not the lower court’s ruling was accurate. After reviewing all pertinent information, the appellate court will either uphold the conviction or reverse part or all of the ruling.
