Criminal Appeals Law Lawyers In Dublin Texas

Dublin is a city in Erath County, Texas, United States. The population was 3,754 at the 2000 census. The town is the home of the world's oldest Dr Pepper bottling plant. The plant, still in operation, was for many years the only US source for Dr Pepper made with real cane sugar, instead of less expensive high fructose corn syrup. Contractual requirements previously limited the plant's distribution range to a 40-mile radius of Dublin, an area encompassing Stephenville, Tolar, Comanche and Hico. However, this restriction was later lifted, and now the "original" formula is available throughout most of Texas and over the Internet. Dublin was also the boyhood home of legendary golfer Ben Hogan, who was born on August 13, 1912, at the hospital in nearby Stephenville. Hogan lived in Dublin until 1921, when he and his family relocated to Fort Worth. Dublin is also known as a sundown town, a town where non-whites were discouraged from staying.

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.
