Criminal Appeals Law Lawyers In Perry Park Kentucky

Perry Park is an unincorporated community, country club and golf resort in Owen County, Kentucky, near Owenton and Carrollton. It is located one hour southwest of Cincinnati, one hour northwest of Lexington, and forty-five minutes east of Louisville, and lies on the Kentucky River. It is one of the more popular golf resorts in the area and has a long history. It is very secluded and private and is thus relatively unknown to most people. The bed and breakfast "Glenwood Hall" was originally constructed as a plantation, where tobacco or possibly soy according to some sources, was grown and shipped to the rest of the United States by the Kentucky River. Perry Park is also noted for its low crime rate and for the fact that it is a gated community with staffed security guards at all entrances.

What is criminal appeals law?

A criminal appeal is a formal request to rehear a case that has already been decided -- a request that a new court reconsider the decision of the first court.

There is no testimony taken.
