The Law Office of Jason T. Komninos, located 4 blocks from the Bergen County Court House in Hackensack, New Jersey is asked many questions regarding the law.
I have already been convicted of a charge. What can I do about it now?
New Jersey allows several remedies to a defendant who has previously been convicted or has entered a guilty plea to a charge.
Appeal: If you feel that the Municipal Court or Superior Court you were convicted in made a mistake, you may be able to appeal your case to the next level of the judicial system.
Expungements: Under certain circumstances, an individual may be able to “erase” their record. This involves filing a petition with the court.
Post-Conviction Relief: There may have been errors in the way your case was handled at the trial level or the penalties impose may have been too severe. If so, a Motion for Post-Conviction Relief may be appropriate.
If you feel that any of these remedies might be appropriate for you, please contact my office.
