Filing Appeals in Madison

If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, you have the right to appeal. At The Coon Law Firm, PLLC, we have extensive experience helping clients challenge the legality of their convictions and sentences.

Although everyone has the right to appeal a decision that was made in criminal court, one must have adequate grounds to do so. A person cannot file an appeal because they do not like the verdict that was given by the judge. There must be evidence that there was some form of legal error or misconduct during the trial.

There are several grounds for an appeal, including:

  • The conviction was unconstitutional
  • The trial court did not have jurisdiction to impose a sentence
  • The penalties exceed the maximum sentencing
  • The presence of material facts that require the conviction to be vacated
  • The defendant made a plea involuntarily

Our post-conviction relief attorney is here to provide a straightforward assessment of your case and work toward achieving a favorable outcome. Contact our office in Madison to discuss your case.

Understanding Expungements

Serving a criminal sentence is often not the end of the negative effects of a conviction. Now you have a criminal record that can disrupt several aspects of your life. These include finding a job, securing housing, and possessing a firearm.

Fortunately, you may be able to obtain post-conviction relief through expungement. Getting a conviction expunged from your record means having it removed from publicly-searched databases. This ensures that when a potential landlord or employer runs a background check, they will not be able to see that you were found guilty of a crime. Expungement can also be used to remove arrests and charges that have been added to your record.

First-time misdemeanor offenders are most likely to secure an expungement. However, in certain situations, repeat offenders can also have their records cleared.

In Mississippi, the 6 felonies that can be expunged include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Larceny
  • False pretenses
  • Malicious mischief
  • Drug possession
  • Bad check crimes

Dealing with Your Arrest Warrant

Arrest warrants can have a severe impact on your criminal record. If the court has issued a warrant for your arrest, contact our law firm right away. We can provide trustworthy guidance on how to proceed.

Have you been accused of violating the terms of your probation? Our Madison post-conviction relief lawyer can help you defend against the allegations and prevent the revocation of your parole.
