Appealing a Sex Crime Charge

Is It Possible to Appeal a Sex Crime Conviction in New Jersey?

If you were convicted of a sex crime charge, it is important to know that it is possible to appeal your conviction and possibly have it overturned by a higher court. It is also important to know that not every criminal defense attorney handles sex conviction appeals and that not every case is suitable for an appeal.

How Our Law Firm Can Help After a Sex Crime Conviction

Our law firm has successfully appealed reporting and sex offender registration requirements, helping clients terminate or modify the conditions of their parole or probation. We have been successful with motions to remove individuals from community supervision for life (CSL) or parole supervision for life (PSL). We know the eligibility requirements for removal from supervision: a specific amount of elapsed time and no further convictions of any kind are two of the most important. Our New Jersey attorney makes sure that the court knows about mitigating circumstances if the eligibility requirements cannot be met.

We have also been able to have the level of convictions reduced. Known as tier reduction, this can lessen the impact of a sex crime conviction on daily life, and parole officer check-ins, polygraphs, and other forms of monitoring can be eliminated or reduced. Other successes include having sentences reduced or stayed.
