How Exactly Does The Appeals Process Work?

 

A motion for a new trial can be granted if a jury arrives at the verdict in error. They could have ruled against the principles of the law or disregarded the evidence. A motion like this is based on the following issues:

 

  • Improper jury selection
  • Misconduct on the part of the prosecution
  • Admissibility of material evidence
  • Failure to suppress the evidence
  • Failure to give the requested jury charges
  • Infringement on one's constitutional rights

 

A DUI conviction must start the appeal process within 30 days of the conviction either by filing a notice of appeal or a motion for a new trial. A knowledgeable DUI attorney can argue that your DUI conviction needs to be reversed and present the evidence to the judge,

 

In most cases, new evidence is not allowed in an appeal. However, if new evidence is found, there may be a motion for a new trial granted if the following conditions are met:

 

  • New evidence has been discovered since the last trial.
  • The evidence is significant and can possibly lead to another verdict.
  • The evidence is not solely cumulative.
  • The affidavit of the witnesses themselves needs to be procure, or the absence needs to be accounted for.
