Reopening a Sex Crime Case

Sex Conviction Appeals – Reopening Sex Crime Cases in North Carolina

If you have been convicted of a sex crime in North Carolina, you should know that, in certain circumstances, you can seek to have your case reopened in an appeal. These circumstances are limited, however, and require the assistance of a skilled criminal appeals lawyer.

At Roberts Law Group, PLLC, North Carolina sex conviction appeal attorney Patrick Roberts provides experienced legal advice and representation to convicted sex offenders throughout the state. He is available to answer your questions and help you determine if your case is eligible for an appeal or for a Motion for Appropriate Relief. Contact our Raleigh law firm to learn more.

Common Bases for Seeking a Sex Conviction Appeal

To reopen a sex crime case after conviction, you must be able to show that there is a substantive reason. These reasons are limited, and often revolve around evidence:

  • DNA evidence : Many convictions have been overturned on the ability to submit DNA evidence years after a conviction.
  • New evidence: Aside from DNA evidence, it is possible to obtain a sex conviction appeal on the basis of new evidence arising after the end of your trial.
  • Evidentiary concerns from the trial: You can also attempt to challenge your conviction on the basis of an evidentiary issue that occurred during your original trial.

Appealing Sex Offender Registration

Often, individuals convicted of a sex crime call our firm and ask if they can appeal their sex offender registration. In some situations, you do have the ability to remove yourself from the registry. These situations rely heavily on the individual circumstances surrounding your conviction.

Contact Our Sex Offender Registration Appeals Attorney for More Information

Contact our appeals lawyer if you have new evidence such as DNA evidence that can be used in a sex conviction appeal. While personally believing you have been wronged is not enough to overturn a conviction, having new, substantive evidence might be enough. Talk to us in your free initial consultation to learn more.
