Criminal Appeals Law Lawyers In Delmita Texas

Delmita is an unincorporated community in Starr County, Texas, United States. Its elevation is 272 feet (83 m). Although Delmita is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 78536. Originally founded as Zaragosa in 1919, the community's name was changed to Delmita on 1931-04-01 due to confusion with the Reeves County community of Saragosa. The community's first post office was established soon after the community itself was, but a new post office was constructed in 1991. Delmita's importance has fallen through the years; in 1940, it was the most important community in the northeastern part of the county, but it has since been overshadowed by San Isidro.

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.
