Benefits of Post-Conviction Relief
Post-conviction relief is essentially when a defendant requests a higher court to review a decision made by a lower court. There are numerous ways to appeal to a higher court, including a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, which is a writ that takes a detainee to court to determine if the lower court had valid reasons for sentencing. You could also try claiming that your original counsel was insufficient in that they did not properly explain the process or your options to you, or that they did not gather enough evidence for your case. However, you only have a limited amount of time in which you can file an appeal, so it is of the utmost importance to contact a skilled attorney as soon as you are able.
Post-conviction relief differs from other forms of appeal in that post-conviction relief:
- Is a type of appeal which questions or challenges the trial’s events where the higher court has the ability to order the lower court for a retrial of your case.
- Has a quick timetable, meaning you do not have very much time to submit your appeal.
- Has the same judge who brought down the decree overseeing the appeal.
