What Is a Criminal Appeal?

A criminal appeal is a process allowing convicted felons to challenge a conviction by a jury or bench trial. It is an opportunity for the convicted party to present any issues were not addressed or that were mishandled at trial.

The panel to which a criminal appeal must be presented will be determined by the district in which the trial occurred and the charges presented by the prosecution.

Typically, in the event that a petitioner’s request for appeal is denied, he or she can ask for a review from a higher court; however, these higher courts are not required to accept this request.

Who Is Eligible to Appeal a Criminal Conviction?

Most appeals are based a defendant’s case where any combination of the following has occurred:

  • Evidence was improperly collected
  • The chain of evidence was corrupted
  • Evidence was tampered with or improperly processed
  • Evidence and or testimony was allowed in court which should not have been allowed
  • False testimony was given
  • Defense attorney did not properly represent their client
  • A judge read incorrect instructions to the jury
  • Potential jury/juror bias or conflict of interest
  • A judge or persecutor involved in the case having been found guilty of misconduct in office
  • Evidence provided during trial was not sufficient to convict
  • Evidence was not allowed or presented in court that may have affected the outcome
  • New evidence has been discovered which may prove the innocence of the person convicted
  • Improper coercion was made toward the defendant by their attorney or prosecutors

These things and many others can be the potential basis for an appeal.
