Appealing a Criminal Case in New Mexico
Dedicated Representation from an Albuquerque Criminal Defense Lawyer
Did you already go to trial for a case? Were you not pleased with the results that you were given? You may be able to appeal. Contact an Albuquerque criminal attorney at The Romero Law Firm, P.A. We can help you look at the entire trial process and may be able to help you file an appeal to a higher court. You may appeal any issue that was raised at trial and fight to overturn a bad ruling. It is important that you work with an attorney though; this process can be tricky and the laws governing appeals can be hard to navigate, so make sure to contact our team as soon as possible.
Submitting a Brief
You and your attorney will submit a brief to the appellate court. With the brief, there will be an included copy of the court transcript and any evidence that was used during your trial.
During this process, the appellate will review the trial and look to find any errors made by the opposing side which may have swayed a juror or judge's final decision in your verdict.
Errors During Trial
There are numerous types of errors which can be found. Fundamental errors can obstruct the interest of justice, reversible errors can overturn a smaller court's decision and harmful or harmless errors may be found throughout the evidence and trial.
Losing an Appeal
If you lose an appeal, you may have the option to appeal again to a higher court. Some cases are taken to the State Supreme Court or to a federal Supreme Court. At these levels, it is important that you work with an attorney from The Romero Law Firm, P.A.
Winning an Appeal with the Help of Our Firm
If you win your appeal, there is a chance that a prosecutor will simply drop the charges against you or offer you an opportunity to plead guilty with a sentence of time served.
