In some cases, the guilty verdict is appealed, or challenged by the defendant. The State Attorney General’s Office handles these appeals for felony cases. To request to be notified of an appeal of a felony, complete the Attorney General’s form and return it to your victim advocate.
If the case is appealed, staff from the Attorney General’s Office of Victim Services will contact you and provide information regarding pending appeals and their outcome. For more information about felony appeals handled by the Attorney General's Officer click here.
