Chandler Post-Conviction Relief

Chandler Appeals Lawyer – Post Conviction Relief

Have you been convicted of a crime in Chandler, AZ? You may be facing onerous penalties, including jail or even possibly prison time as well as other long-lasting consequences. However, even though you have been convicted of a crime, all hope is not lost. You may still have post-conviction legal remedies available to you and it is imperative to seek the advice of an experienced Chandler appeals lawyer to determine which legal options may be available to you.  It is also critical to speak with an attorney as soon as possible, so as not to miss any filing deadlines in your case. If you miss a filing deadline, you may forfeit your right to file a petition for post-conviction relief. Your post-conviction legal remedies will depend on whether you pled guilty (or no contest) by way of plea agreement or were convicted after a bench or jury trial, or a probation violation, or sentenced to death, as well as other factors. Your attorney will be able to review your case and discuss your post-conviction relief (PCR) options.

There are several reasons why you may be able to file a petition for post-conviction relief. One reason would be if you believe that the court was outside of their jurisdiction to impose the sentence you received. Another reason would be if the sentence exceeds the maximum sentence that is allowed by law. Additionally, if there are newly discovered facts that have come to light after the trial, this could be raised in a petition for post-conviction relief. Also, if there have been significant changes to the law, this could be another reason to file a PCR. Appeals and post-conviction relief have many complexities and each case presents with a unique set of facts so it is advisable to seek out the assistance of a competent criminal defense attorney who has significant experience in appeal work to ensure that you are able to seek out any legal remedy that may be available to you after you have been convicted of a crime.
