If you have been convicted of a crime in the State of Georgia, you need to immediately file a Motion for a New Trial. You only have fourteen days in which to file an appeal in Georgia, after which, you would be precluded from being granted a new trial. There are often many reasons an appeal could be granted to you in your case, including:
- Ineffective counsel
- Errors made with evidence
- Judge improperly entering evidence into court
- Improper criminal procedure
- Judge refusing to suppress evidence that should be suppressed
- Violation of Constitutional rights
Although you may be tempted to continue using the same attorney for your appeal as he or she is intimately familiar with your case, you may benefit substantially from hiring a new lawyer – especially if you are appealing your conviction on the grounds that your counsel was ineffective.
At the Law Office Of Sparticus Heyward, we have the resources and skills you need to increase the chances that you will not only be approved for a new trial, but that you will prevail in court a second time. If you have exhausted the appeals process, we can assist you in filing a writ of Habeas Corpus, which will challenge the constitutionality of your conviction.
Don’t assume that just because you were found guilty in court that you have to accept your conviction and sentencing. There isn’t much time – call us for a consultation as soon as possible to discuss your case and an appeal or writ of Habeas Corpus. (770) 933-5324.
