America’s criminal justice system was created so that everyone would have access to justice. However, sometimes the system fails and innocent people get convicted of crimes that they did not commit. If this has happened to you or loved one, a Florida criminal appeals defense attorney from the Law Offices of A Randall Haas can help. It is your constitutional right to appeal a verdict in both federal and state appeals court. A criminal appeal is filed after a guilty conviction. An appeal is not a re-trial, but a request for the original trial to be reviewed by the Appellate court for unjust proceedings or errors.
FLORIDA STATE AND FEDERAL CRIMINAL APPEALS
Appeals are generally available to anyone convicted of a crime. However, you cannot appeal your case if you accepted a plea bargain.
