Post Conviction Relief/ Appeals

A case is not “over” at sentencing. The accused can appeal his conviction and sentence. If the appeal has not “worked”, the there are still other approaches. Was the sentence legal? Did the defendant receive all credit to which he was entitled? Has DOC properly classified and structured the sentences? Did the defendant receive proper representation?
All of these are areas of inquiry for attempting to reverse a conviction, reduce a sentence or improve the circumstances of confinement.
