What is Post-Conviction Relief?
Post-conviction relief is the process through which a person asks a judge to vacate their criminal conviction in either a state or federal court. There are multiple reasons a judge may render a criminal conviction null and void. Some examples include: a violation of the individual’s rights, an unfair sentence, or an issue with the representation provided by a former attorney. If any of these factors are found, a judge could order an individual released from prison, impose a new sentence, or grant a new trial.
Many post-conviction claims are filed by individuals on “pro se” (“on behalf of oneself”) bases. They typically file them after their direct criminal appeals were lost and their convictions were affirmed.
