When you appeal on the grounds of any error made at the trial level, the error must be a substantial one as opposed to a harmless one with little or no impact on the result. Taking harmless errors out of the picture, you now have two grounds for appeal: the trial court made a serious error of law or procedure (plain error), or the evidence does not support the verdict.
A plain error is defined as one that affecting the defendant’s constitutional rights. In this case, the error may not have been brought to the judge’s attention during the trial. Appeals based on inadequate evidence are rarely successful. As appellate courts don’t hear witness testimonies, opening and closing statements, or see the presentation of evidence, they are not really well-equipped to evaluate the weight of the evidence. This is why they often give trial courts leeway and support their verdict.
In 2015 appeals case Armentrout v. The State involving John Creek Police Department’s police checkpoint program, the Georgia Court of Appeals held that the state was wrong in detaining the defendant at a roadblock set up by the police. After stopping the defendant, police had arrested her and charged her with DUI. She pursued a motion to suppress the evidence gathered from the traffic stop, arguing that the checkpoint was unlawful. The Fulton Court Judge presiding over the trial denied Armentrout’s motion to suppress, which the Georgia Court of Appeals deemed as an error, contending that the state had failed to prove that the checkpoint program had “an appropriate primary purpose”.
