The time limit on filing an appeal

Posted on Friday, November 6th, 2009 at 9:17 am    

When an individual is convicted of a crime, that individual generally has the option to file for an appeal. However, there is often a certain time limit for appeals.

The time limit often depends on state law and may last between 30 and 90 days. Once the time limit elapses, convicted criminals typically have very few options, unless new evidence is presented that could significantly change the verdict.
