Types of Theft and Property Crime Appeals
After you are convicted of theft, robbery, white-collar crime, or any other property crime in Muskegon, you may be able to appeal either your verdict or sentence. If you believe the jury or judge was biased or acted unlawfully in finding you guilty, you may be able to appeal to have the decision overturned. In most cases, however, you will seek to appeal the sentence you are facing, and try to prove that the judge didn’t act accordingly considering Michigan law and sentencing guidelines, or that for any other reason or sentence is unlawful. Our attorneys have extensive experience working with clients in both verdict and sentence appeal cases.
You may also file either an appeal by right or an appeal by leave in Michigan. In some cases, you have the right to appeal within 21 days of when your sentence is entered. In other cases, or if the period to appeal by right has expired, you must request permission from the appellate court to appeal your case.
Win a Theft or Property Crime Appeal
In an appellate case, you likely won’t have the opportunity to enter anything new into your case, and the outcome of the appeal will depend greatly on briefs submitted by your attorney, which outline why your verdict or sentence is unlawful or unjust. In addition to filing all forms and paying all fees in a timely matter, your brief is the sole determination of whether your verdict or sentence will be changed, which is why it is essential that you hire the best possible defense lawyer.
