Imprisoned Inmates

Services For Prisoners

A common misconception made by the loved one’s of prisoners, and by prisoners themselves, is that they cannot appeal, that their case is over because they have taken a plea deal. Also, some just aren’t aware of the available legal options at their disposal. Whether appeal rights have been waived or not, prisoners still possess constitutional rights to appeal their convictions where cause is found. They are not afforded as many rights as rights as prisoners who have lost trial, but nonetheless, they have enough rights to challenge their convictions in effort to give back time.
