How Does a Criminal Appeal Work?

When someone files a criminal appeal, they are requesting the Court of Appeals of Georgia to review a trial court proceeding to determine if any legal error was made. If a mistake of law did occur, the court would also evaluate the evidence to see if the defendant is entitled to a post-conviction modification.

There are three main ways that the Court of Appeals can modify a prior judgment, including:

  • The judgment could be reversed: the decision of the lower court is rejected as incorrect by the higher court
  • The judgment could be vacated: the previous legal judgment is made void
  • The judgement could be remanded: the defendant is sent back to the trial court for further proceedings

The Court of Appeals’ decision will be based strictly on the trial court record, briefs, and the law. In some cases, they may also consider oral arguments that were made by the parties.

Let Us Handle Your Appellate Case in Georgia

There are a wide variety of reasons that the Court of Appeals could dismiss the appeal, including a lack of clear legal error and failure to adhere to the strict rules that govern appeals.
