The Appeals Process
If you have been convicted of a crime in the United States, you are granted the benefits of the appeals process. During this time, an appellate court will review the case to decide if any mistakes were made that could have changed the outcome. These mistakes can include prejudice against you by the lawyers or juries or a lack of substantial evidence to support the claim against you.
What is a Probation?
Often given as an alternative to prison time, probation allows you to continue with your life but with restrictions. For example, you may have to prove your sobriety by taking random or regular drug tests.
In addition, you will not be allowed to possess a firearm, may be restricted as to who you can associate with, and have to check in with a probation officer regularly.
Failure to follow the terms of the probation can lead to you having to serve your sentence in jail or prison, which is why it is vital that you hire representation if you have been accused of a probation violation and/or facing a probation revocation. At Rowenhorst Law, we have the experience and knowledge to defend your freedom.
It is important to remember that an appeal is not a new trial. There must be a valid reason to ask for an appeal, as frivolous appeals cases can be punished by the court. At Rowenhorst Law, our Minot criminal defense attorney is well-versed in all post-conviction matters.
