Types of Theft and Property Crime Appeals

In some cases you have the right to appeal without petitioning a higher court. This type of appeal, called appeal by right, is possible in many cases provided you act quickly enough. In certain other cases, you will have to file an appeal by application for leave, meaning you will need to ask permission from the court before you appeal.

It is possible to appeal the guilty verdict in your case, or just the sentence you feel was unjust. In both cases, you need to have grounds for appeal, and be able to prove your appellate case in a written brief, as you won’t get a new case or trial. Upon winning an appeal, you may go free, or you may receive a retrial, depending on the details of the situation. Contact our Ann Arbor appellate defense firm now to learn more.

Appealing a Verdict in Ann Arbor for Theft and Property Crime Cases

There are a few reasons why you may seek to appeal a guilty verdict in a case. If you believe that the jury was biased or unlawfully misled, or if judge bias led to a decision that was inconsistent with the evidence presented in the case, you may be able to appeal and improve your result based on a review of the trial and a written brief expressing your concerns. Other grounds can include finding out an alleged expert witness was not truly a qualified expert, or finding out about prosecutor misconduct during the trial.

Appeal an Excessive Sentence after Ann Arbor Theft and Property Crime Conviction

If the sentence you receive in your case, or the sentence given to someone you care about, is inconsistent with the facts of the case, similar precedents, or Michigan Sentencing Guidelines, you may be able to seek a more favorable sentence by challenging through an appeal.
