If the PCR motion is successful, the judge may grant the petition and order a new trial, modify the sentence, or order some other form of relief for the defendant. In your case, a post-conviction relief may be the key to obtaining a positive resolution and protecting your future opportunities!
The Post-Conviction Relief Process
Post-conviction relief cases usually begin with a reading and investigation of transcripts and other written materials from the court proceedings. Next, the attorney testifies, at which point the victim may be requested to testify. Unlike appeals proceedings,
the petitioner has the right to address the court during a PCR hearing. In addition, the victim also has the right to give an impact statement.
