When you are convicted of a crime, you have a constitutional right to appeal both your conviction and your sentence. There are other times when an appeal can be taken in a criminal case. A probationer may have the right to appeal the trial court’s determination that he or she violated probation. Even someone who pleads guilty to a crime may have the right to appeal his or her sentence in certain instances.

An appeal means that the Indiana Court of Appeals will look at your case and try to figure out if there were any errors that would mean reversing your conviction. The Court of Appeals determines whether there was an error in the trial of your case. There can be several reasons why a trial court may have erred in a criminal trial – there may have been a mistake in interpreting the law by the judge, there may be questions about witness testimony, there may be evidence which should not have been admitted or defense evidence that was kept out which should have been admitted.
