Citrus County Post Conviction & Motion Practice Lawyer

What Is Post Conviction?

Post conviction is defined as “the legal process which takes place after a criminal trial results in a conviction of the defendant, or where a defendant accepts a plea of guilty or no-contest. 

After conviction, a court will proceed with sentencing the defendant. In the criminal justice system, once a defendant has received a guilty verdict, he or she can then challenge a conviction or sentence.”

What Is Motion? 

motion is a “request to a court for a desired ruling or order. Various motions can be made throughout a case, but only after the initial complaint has been filed.”

Why Should You Consider a Motion?

For those who have been found guilty and are currently in the midst of their post-conviction period, there is hope to appeal the decision made. In some cases, filing a motion can be beneficial for those who feel their conviction was unjust and would like to further explore their case. Motions can provide needed relief from an undeserved conviction. Florida’s Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.850 outlines the ground for motion. However, it is important to note that motions may not always be successful, and one should seek professional guidance prior to filing.
