If your appeal in criminal court fails, you can still file a motion for post-conviction relief. You would challenge your conviction and/or sentence after exhausting direct appeals. By asking for post-conviction relief, you’re telling the court that you didn’t receive a full and complete defense.
Some examples of constitutional violations include:
- Prosecutorial misconduct
- Juror misconduct
- Evidence not being heard at your trial
- Ineffective assistance of counsel
Do not say anything that might incriminate you. Speak with an attorney first.
If your motion is successful, you could:
- Reopen your case after a criminal conviction
- Vacate the conviction in your case at the judge’s order
- Set aside or correct a sentence or any fines that you have been ordered to pay
- Request a new trial on the merits of your case
