Assault Appeal by Right or Application for Leave in Detroit Michigan
In assault cases, most of the time the defendant will have the right to appeal to a higher court, unless they have accepted a plea deal or otherwise waived that right. This kind of appeal is called an appeal by right, and is usually available after an assault conviction for a short period of time, usually just under a month. If this time period expires, an appeal by right will likely no longer be available.
In other cases, appeal by application for leave may be possible. In appeal by leave cases, the appellant must first request permission from the court to file an appeal. Only if permission is granted can he or she proceed with the appellate process.

Appealing an Assault Verdict or Sentence
In order to successfully appeal, you need grounds to appeal and must make a convincing case in an appellate brief. To appeal a verdict, you will need to demonstrate that jury or judge bias, jury or judge or prosecutor misconduct, or other unlawful or unjust actions led to your conviction.
