Morrill is a village located in the extreme west panhandle of Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska, United States. It is part of the Scottsbluff, Nebraska Micropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 957 at the 2000 census. In 1886 the first settlers found a fertile valley at the mouth of the Sheep Creek draw and staked their claims. They came from Fort Collins, Colo. , in search of a new home. They called their new home Collins, which was located nearly a mile north of present Morrill. In 1900 the railroad determined the relocation of what is now Morrill. The new town was named for Charles Henry Morrill, president of the Lincoln Land Company. As president he laid out a tract of land for a town. In 1901 a post office was opened and the Village of Morrill was incorporated in April 1907. Some of the original buildings are still occupied today with thriving businesses. Electricity came to Morrill about 1912.

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. When one or both sides of a case that has already been decided think there was a mistake made at trial, they can file an appeal. An appeal is entirely different than a jury trial. There is no testimony taken. The court of appeals decides the case entirely upon the written briefs filed by your attorney and the offie of the Attorney General who represents the prosecution and asks that the conviction be upheld.
