Federal Criminal Appeal Lawyers in Utah

We deal with cases in which the defendant has been wrongly convicted or sentenced due to improper jury instructions, a misapplied legal principle on the part of the trial judge, evidence tampering, perjury, and other factors that resulted in an unfair trial. Most criminal appeals start in the Salt Lake City United States District Court after a defendant is convicted or sentenced. When handling federal appeals, we analyze adequate jury instructions, violations of discovery rules, improper admission of expert testimony, illegal searches and seizures, improperly obtained confessions, conflict of interest on the part of the presiding judge, improperly handled evidence and prejudiced testimony.

Salt Lake City Federal Appeals Lawyers

A direct appeal, unlike proceedings for habeas corpus, will be limited to mistakes which appear on a trial record. As one example, imagine that a defendant stood accused of a criminal act that was discovered to have happened on a certain day. This defendant informs his attorney that he was within Utah for one month after and before that day. In order to verify the alibi, he will provide the attorney with the identities of ten witnesses who may prove his presence within Utah during that time. If the attorney does not interview those witnesses or does not call the witnesses to testify in trial and a defendant is convicted, his trial record will show that the ten witnesses didn’t testify. Why these witnesses did not testify potentially won’t appear on the record. If the reason does, the attorney’s deficient conduct might be one ground raised upon direct appeal. If the reason doesn’t appear on the record, it may just be raised within a proceeding for habeas corpus after a direct appeal, if an appeal isn’t successful on additional grounds.
