Understanding Criminal Appeals In New York

Criminal appeals serve as an avenue for individuals to challenge the outcome of their trial or plea. There are two primary types of criminal appeals: plea appeals and trial appeals. A plea appeal seeks to overturn or modify a guilty plea, while a trial appeal challenges the verdict or sentencing following a trial. The appeals process offers an opportunity to present legal arguments that highlight errors or violations that may have affected the fairness or outcome of the original case.

It involves filing appropriate legal documents, conducting thorough research and presenting compelling arguments before an appellate court.
