The Appeals Process

Either side in a criminal case may appeal with respect to the sentence that is being imposed.

People convicted at trial may have the right to appeal the decision to a federal court of appeals. Not all cases are accepted for appeal, but those that are will move on to this higher court. In criminal cases specifically, a defendant who is found to be guilty may want to appeal the verdict if the case was impacted by errors, possible juror misconduct, or various other unfair practices.
