Criminal Law San Diego

If You Are Convicted

In most cases, after either a plea of guilty or a finding of guilt after trial, the following options may be available:
  • Motion for new trial OR Motion to withdraw guilty plea:  These two motions must be addressed on a case by case basis, but both motions attempt to set aside the conviction.

  • Appeal:  Again, the facts of each case must be examined to determine if one can bring an appeal and, if so, whether it would it have merit.

  • Modification of sentence:  It is possible in some cases to come back before the sentencing judge and ask for modifications on some of the terms and conditions of probation.

  • Expungement:  In some cases, after a person has successfully completed the terms and conditions of probation, it may be possible to appear before the court and have the conviction expunged from your record.
