When A Prior Denial Of A Motion To Appeal Can Be Overcome
The denial by an intermediate appellate court is not always the end of the story in a criminal appeal. Highly experienced appellate law attorneys may find justification by which to try again.
At Rosenberg Law Firm, our team approach is advantageous for our defendants in state criminal cases who seek to appeal even after being initially denied.
Reasons To File A Motion For Leave To Appeal A Prior Denial
Justification may be found in rare circumstances, such as when an appellate lawyer or a judge has died before an appeal was properly considered. Or, there may be more common but hard-to-prove reasons, such as the alleged:
- The intermingling of questions of fact with questions of law
- Excessive sentencing
- Questions of the weight of various types of evidence that affected the case outcome
These are a few examples of reasons to file a motion for leave (permission) to appeal a prior denial, but they are certainly not the only ones. If such a reason exists in your case, we are determined to bring it to light.
