Twin Cities’ Litigation & Appeals Lawyer

When a person has been convicted of a crime in the State of Minnesota, he or she has the right to appeal that conviction to the Minnesota Court of Appeals, and ultimately the Minnesota Supreme Court.  There can be various reasons why a person may want to appeal a conviction, including but not limited to:

  1. The District Court made an adverse ruling on a constitutional issue, such as the stop of an automobile, probable cause for a search, probable cause for a search warrant, the admissibility of a defendant’s statement;
  2. The sentence imposed was greater than the presumptive sentence under  Minnesota law;
  3. The District Court made various errors during the course of the trial, including evidentiary issues involving witnesses and/or demonstrable evidence.
