A direct appeal is an appeal order of a three-judge court that grants or denies an injunction that can be taken directly to a higher court. In Florida, these direct appeals are filed with a district court of appeal. Normally, direct appeals are only useful if the individual who was convicted of a crime entered a plea of not guilty. In cases in which the individual entered a guilty or no contest plea, the chances for an appeal are very low.
