Appeals

In criminal cases, after conviction and sentencing, a defendant has the option to file an appeal of the conviction and sentence. If the conviction resulted from a guilty plea, the defendant may have to ask for leave to appeal, which means they can make a request for permission to appeal the conviction. If the conviction results from a trial, the defendant has an absolute right to appeal.

An appeal involves a review of the trial record to ensure that the trial court proceedings were conducted in a fair manner, it is not a retrial of the case. On appeal, the appellate court will normally make any reasonable inferences of fact in favor of the appellee, meaning that if a criminal defendant files an appeal the facts are viewed in the light most favorable to the prosecutor.
