Criminal Appeals Law Lawyers In Ibapah Utah

Ibapah is a small unincorporated community in far western Tooele County, Utah, United States, near the Nevada state line. The town is located near the Deep Creek Mountains. The site was originally established in 1859 by Mormon missionaries sent to teach the local Native Americans farming methods. A Pony Express station operated here in 1860 and 1861, and the town was on an early alignment of the Lincoln Highway. It is currently inhabited mostly by the Goshute Indian tribe, with scattered farmlands and a trading post belonging to more recent settlers. A post office operated at Ibapah from 1883 to 1980. Originally named "Deep Creek" for a creek of the same name in the area, the name was later changed to Ibapah. "Ibapah" is an anglicized form of the Goshute word Ai-bim-pa which means "White Clay Water". The town is isolated and is usually reached by going out of Utah into Nevada and back into Utah. The climate is typical of that of a high elevation Great Basin location.

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.
