There are two types of appeals in Michigan; appeal by right and appeal by application for leave. The difference is that an appeal by right does not require permission from a higher court to be filed, while an appeal by application for leave does. If you have entered a plea of not guilty and are convicted of a crime, you have the right to appeal the verdict reached by the judge or jury. If you have plead guilty or nolo contendre, or if you accepted a plea bargain, you may have forfeited your right to appeal the verdict. Even if you have forfeited your right to appeal, your attorney may be able to help you appeal your sentence in a higher court or pursue another post-conviction option. Contact Grabel & Associates at 1-800-342-7896 to learn more about the appellate process.
