Closing Arguments - Episode 3 (What Happens After a Conviction?)

A conviction has been reached in court, but what happens next?

In the latest installment of Closing Arguments, John and Ryan explore this question and the various strategies at a defendant's disposal to continue the fight. Within this conversation, they explore three key themes that can take place following convictions: The Appeal Process, Post Conviction Relief, and Sentence Modification.

Each of these avenues contains its own complexities, but each can be a viable solution for someone convicted in court if they meet particular standards.

Just when you think it's over, it may not be!
