What Does It Mean To Appeal A Case In Georgia?

A wide variety of mistakes can and do happen during a criminal trial that can negatively impact a defendant or lead to a wrongful conviction.

Fortunately, the law allows individuals to appeal their cases. But it's important to note that an appeal doesn't mean starting from scratch with the ability to reargue new facts and introduce new evidence.

Acceptable Grounds For An Appeal

Appellate courts will only consider mistakes made by a judge or attorney during trial. Common examples include:

  • Ineffective assistance of counsel
  • Legal errors with the sentence imposed
  • Unfitting arguments made at trial
  • Evidence erroneously admitted or rejected at trial

If you wish to inquire about an appeal for yourself or on behalf of a loved one, contacting an attorney knowledgeable in handling both Georgia and federal criminal appeals cases is the first step.

Arguments for an appeal are always based on specific circumstances.
