Midway City is an unincorporated community located in Orange County, California. It is bordered by the cities of Westminster to its east and Huntington Beach to its west. It was so named because it is midway between Long Beach and Santa Ana. It is one of Orange County's oldest communities, and many of its homes are 1950s construction. It includes two mobile home parks. The residents that live here are moderate income, with many of them senior citizens. Although it is only 2.4 square miles (6.2 km), it has over 15,000 residents. Recently, the Local Agency Formation Commission announced that the community might be annexed to Huntington Beach, which is the city that is most financially capable of encompassing the community. Prior attempts for annexation have met fierce resistance from its residents who would rather stay an unincorporated area of the county to maintain lower water and property rates than neighboring communities. Signature drives have been highly successful in repelling annexation attempts from not only Huntington Beach, but the city of Westminster to its Southwest. The ZIP Code is 92655, and the community is inside area codes 657 and 714.

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.
