Long Beach Military Courts Martial Appeal Lawyer

Courts Martial Appeals

If you are convicted of a crime in a court martial related to the United States Armed Forces, your rights differ significantly from those available to a civilian. While you do have the legal right to appeal your courts martial conviction, the form and process of appeal is far different from those available in civil court. Read on for more information about appealing your courts-martial verdict.

Difference Between a Civil and a Military Appeal

The primary difference between a civil and a military appeal is that in courts martial, the case cannot be retried. Rather, the case can be re-evaluated and reviewed for errors, including errors of sentencing, fact, and trial procedure. Once this review is complete, the military judge has the option to refer your case to a criminal appeals court or even to the United States Supreme Court for review. However, review is only available if you have a certain sentence. Only sentences of dishonorable or bad-conduct discharges, death, confinement, or loss of officer status can be brought forward for review by the court of criminal appeals in your branch of the military.

Due to the severity of the potential sentences and the complexity of getting a case before the criminal court, it is vital that people wishing to undertake a courts martial appeal seek the proper help before they appeal. There's only one shot to get an appeal right, and the appellate process can be confusing, complicated, and time-consuming. That's why it's so important to arm yourself with the best weapon available to a member of the military facing confinement or another serious sentence – a military lawyer who is ready, willing, and able to completely defend you and properly carry out your military appeal.
