Appeal a Drunk Driving Guilty Verdict in Kalamazoo
If you know that you have been wrongly convicted and that the court made an error or relied on jury or judge bias in your case, you can appeal the guilty verdict itself. In a verdict appeal, you won’t actually get a new trial, but rather will be able to present your issues with the decision in writing, and have a court review that and the original trial record. Verdict appeals are very difficult to win, and there may be other post-conviction motions available to you, depending on the specifics of your situation. Consult an attorney before attempting to take any action alone.
Appeal a OWI Sentence in Kalamazoo
If you are unable to challenge the guilty verdict but still believe your sentence was unjustly harsh, it is possible to review only that portion of the decision through a sentence appeal.
