How to have a conviction overturned or a sentence thrown out
Sometimes, you don’t get your constitutional right to a fair trial. Prosecutor misconduct, improper jury instructions, prejudicial evidence and other forms of judicial misconduct often land defendants with unjust verdicts and overly harsh sentences.
To have a conviction overturned or a sentence thrown out, you must be able to prove there was a judicial error to the point that the verdict clearly should have been different. You cannot just appeal your case because the outcome was not to your liking; a genuine miscarriage of justice must have transpired.
If you were convicted due to judicial error or prejudice, the court did not carry out justice and you deserve a second chance to have your constitutional rights upheld. Pursuing an appeal to an unjust conviction or sentence is how law enforcement is judicial precedents and keep justice in evolution.
