Mesa Post Conviction Relief Attorney
Rule 32 Lawyer in Mesa, Arizona
If you have been convicted of a crime in Mesa, Arizona after a trial, you have the right to file a direct appeal and have your case reviewed by a higher court. If you enter into a plea agreement or plead guilty, however, you generally forfeit your right to an appeal. Mesa Defendants who waive their appeal rights still have the right to seek post conviction review of their case by filing a Petition for Post Conviction Relief or a “Rule 32”. Issues that can be raised during Rule 32 proceedings include:
- Ineffective assistance of counsel
- Denial of right to due process under law
- Newly discovered evidence
