What Is PCR and How Does It Work?
Post-conviction relief is different from direct appeals as it is a motion filed with the trial court instead of an appeals court. These arguments are usually filed to address any uncertainties present in the case. Typically, post-conviction relief is sought after the defendant has lost their direct appeal.
Understanding The Benefits Of Post-Conviction Relief
The primary benefit of post-conviction relief is the potential to overturn a conviction. If new evidence or other important information is presented that could have a significant impact on the case, then it provides an opportunity to challenge the verdict, and potentially gain a new trial.
What’s A Motion To Revoke Probation?
A Plea Of Guilty Was Involuntary
This applies when a defendant entered into a plea agreement, and then later claims to have not understood the terms of the deal or that he or she was coerced into the plea.
Ineffective Assistance Of Counsel
In some cases, defendants may argue that their attorney did not provide an adequate defense at trial. This could be due to a variety of factors, including that the attorney failed to investigate thoroughly or did not present convincing arguments.
The Judgement Or Sentence Is Otherwise Subject To Attack
This argument is used when there are some procedural defects in the way the case was handled. This could involve a lack of evidence or failure to comply with certain procedures.
