How Do I Start the Utah Criminal Appeal Process?
Depending on where you are in the appeals process, you might face receive a completely new case or review the previous court case and not provide any new evidence in the appellate court. In order to start the process, you need an appellate brief. Your defense lawyer will review the case and lay out all of the arguments to be discussed in the appeal. This forms the appellate brief that your attorney files to the court and the prosecution.
After your appellate brief has been filed, the prosecution also files an appellate brief with counter-arguments. Upon review of both sides’ arguments, a judge determines if you have cause for an appeal.
