Should I appeal?
Mistakes happen to everyone in every area of life. Even in criminal trials. The appellate process is completely different than that experienced at the trial court level. Whether you have entered a plea, or been convicted by a judge or jury, you still have a direct right to an appeal. If you feel that you were not properly represented, or that you did not receive the protections afforded to you by the United States and Ohio Constitutions, then you should appeal.
If there were issues at the trial court, an appeal could result in your case being remanded to the trial court for a new trial or sentencing, reversal of the conviction, or an outright dismissal of all charges that were brought against you.
Adam Nemann will review the record of any relevant proceedings to guarantee that:
- That your Constitutional Procedural Due Process rights were safeguarded;
- That all of the elements of all the charges were proven beyond a reasonable doubt against you in accordance with your Constitutional Substantive Due Process Rights;
- That the Judge did not incorrectly instruct the jury, misinterpret the law as it now stands, and did not abuse their power;
- That your sentence was properly given and journalized; and
- There were not any errors that caused you harm during your plea, trial, or sentence.
