Options For Appealing A Criminal Conviction
The Criminal Justice System Is Not Perfect
Trial errors may include, but are not limited to:
- The erroneous admission of evidence unlawfully obtained from an unreasonable search and seizure
- The erroneous admission of incompetent or otherwise unreliable testimony
- The erroneous admission of coerced or false confessions
- The erroneous admission of evidence of other crimes allegedly committed by the defendant
- The erroneous admission of expert testimony based upon faulty science
- Erroneous jury instructions
- The imposition of excessive or illegal sentences
If you or a loved one has been wrongly convicted of a crime, or received an excessive or illegal sentence, in Baton Rouge or East Baton Rouge Parish, then you are painfully aware that these errors occur. However, these errors can be remedied and need not go uncorrected. There is still hope. You have the right to appeal your conviction. Depending upon the nature and severity of the errors committed during your trial or sentencing, you may be entitled to have your conviction reversed, and your case remanded for a new trial, or to have your sentence vacated or modified.
