Appealing a Conviction in Texas
Defense Attorney - U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
Criminal convictions are still possible, even with an aggressive Houston criminal defense attorney on your side. If you feel that you were wrongfully charged or convicted of a crime that you did not commit, or if you think that your penalties were exceptionally harsh, then you may be able to appeal your case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit with a lawyer who is admitted to this court – like Attorney Rosen.
In an appeal, you and your attorney will work together to determine if you were wrongfully convicted of a crime or if your penalties were too harsh for the crime that was in question. When you work with my firm – the Law Office of Steven Rocket Rosen – then you will be working with an attorney who is dedicated to helping you obtain the legal representation that you deserve in your time of need.
The Criminal Appeals Process
In a criminal appeal process, briefs are submitted to an appellate court along with a copy of the trial transcript. This transcript will be fully reviewed for errors. If errors are found that could have ultimately changed the verdict of the case, then you may be able to change the ultimate outcome of your case. Depending on the nature of the crime that was committed, some cases will allow you to plead guilty to the offense with a sentence of time served. If you lose your appeal, however, you may be able to appeal to a higher court such as the state Supreme Court.
